Fulbright Partner Testifies on Behalf of the International Trademark Association
Alicia Morris Groos
Fulbright partner, Alicia Morris Groos testified before the Business & Industry Committee of the Texas House of Representatives on behalf of the International Trademark Association (INTA), in regards to House Bill 3141 (HB3141), to amend the Texas state statute on trademarks.
The proposed amendment is based on INTA’s revised Model State Trademark Bill and incorporates suggestions from the International Association of Corporate Administrators and the National Association of Secretaries of State with the ultimate goal of joining the Texas trademark statute in consistency with federal law and other states.
The passing of HB3141 is an important step in the enhancement of Texas trademark owners rights.
INTA is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to supporting and advancing trademarks and related intellectual property as elements of fair and effective commerce.
Groos practices out of Fulbright’s Austin office focusing her efforts on U.S. trademark and copyright law and management of domestic and international intellectual property portfolios.
