  • About

    The Intellectual Property Law Section of the New York State Bar Association introduces members of our Association to the interesting and growing areas of law which make up Intellectual Property Law, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing and Internet intellectual property law issues. We provide educational programs, other activities and invite the participation of attorneys, law students and non-lawyer members of the business community. We invite our members to take advantage of substantive legal research through our Law Watch search results, to discuss issues and ideas in our discussion groups, and to participate fully in the e-community of the site.
