The meeting is open to all supplier members of AASA, the light vehicle aftermarket division of the Motor & Equipment Manufacturers Association (MEMA), as well as from MEMA’s other divisions: the Heavy Duty Manufacturers Association (HDMA), MERA – The Sustainable Manufacturing Association and the Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA). Non-member registration is $150 per person for members; IPC members may attend at no charge.

At the event, Amazon representatives will discuss the tools available to brand owners who do not sell directly to the company and will educate attendees on the procedure for conducting take-downs of reviews of counterfeits tied to legitimate brands. In addition to the IPR discussion and tour, meeting attendees can participate with the Amazon team during the meeting’s roundtable. These open discussions will include Amazon Web Services-hosted sites; better understanding of “identifiers” and how to trace them back to sellers; plus understanding Amazon’s country-specific platforms and how they support brand owners’ IP.

Catherine Boland, MEMA vice president of government affairs, will present an update on the latest regulations and legislation at the IPC Q3 2019 meeting as well. The agenda also will include the “Technology Spotlight” on a leading solution provider of IP protection; the Government Agency Spotlight; and a Council update by Chris Gardner, senior vice president, operations, AASA.
