Topic: Import and Export Issues Impacting Intellectual Property Rights
Recent developments in the world of international trade have turned the existing regulatory world on its head. As to imports, newly imposed and threatened U.S. tariffs on billions of dollars of imports as retaliation for foreign appropriation of U.S. intellectual property rights, as well as the commencement of the General Data Protection Regulation on E.U. Personal Data, are just two recent developments potentially involving U.S. IP attorneys. On the exporting side, U.S. companies and their legal counsel should be aware of major U.S. enforcement actions affecting Oregon companies who export technology-based products.
