DC-based global IP voice Timothy Trainer: See video of his talk to US foreign service officers on importance of strong IP rights regimes, given at the USPTO.
Don't miss this video of a compelling and wonderfully practical talk our friend and veteran DC intellectual property rights lawyer Tim Trainer gave in the summer of 2010 to US State Department foreign service officers at the USPTO on the effect of strong IPR regimes on economic growth and development. The video was finally made available last month. Trainer spends much of his time all over the globe raising awareness of intellectual property rights--and educating a broad spectrum of people on the importance of strong IPR regimes to business, and to specific economies, nations and governments. For two decades, he's worked for both government and private industry in everything from developing early IP infrastructure to anti-counterfeiting and enforcement strategies in Asia, Egypt, Brunei, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Philippines, and Vietnam, to name a few. Trainer also directs the well-regarded Washington-based Global Intellectual Property Strategy Center, or GIPSC, and is President of Galaxy Systems, which develops innovative ways of providing intellectual property training and education. Galaxy has already developed an engaging and interactive online game in which the player--using IP and an allotment of money--builds a business, and develops a local economy.
