Partner Matthew C. Wagner has been appointed Chair of the Copyright Law Committee of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (“AIPLA”) (http://www.aipla.org/).   The Copyright Law Committee seeks to increase the interest and involvement of AIPLA members in copyright law and to improve copyright policy, legislation, and jurisprudence by working directly with the U.S. Copyright Office and other government agencies and by providing input to Congress and the courts.  Matt is the Chair of DMOC’s Intellectual Property Department and has been quite active with AIPLA in its Copyright, Trademark, and Internet Committees.  Matt was most recently Vice Chair of the Copyright Law Committee and participated in the development and submission of comments to the Copyright Office, on behalf of the Committee, including papers on mass digitization, protection of visual works, copyright small claims, orphan works, and other issues. 

AIPLA is a national bar association of approximately 14,000 members who are primarily lawyers engaged in private or corporate practice, in government service, and in the academic community. AIPLA members represent a wide and diverse spectrum of individuals, companies, and institutions involved directly or indirectly in the practice of patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, and unfair competition law, as well as other fields of law affecting intellectual property.
