Mr. Cohen's topic is entitled "The Common Senses of U.S. Trademark Law: Protection and Enforcement of Non-Traditional Marks." Among other areas covered, his talk will include a discussion of the latest developments in American trademark law pertaining to colors, scents, shapes, sounds, moving images, holograms,  tastes, and textures as marks.

INTA is a non-profit membership association dedicated to the support and advancement of trademarks and related intellectual property as elements of fair and effective commerce. The International Trademark Association was founded well over a century ago, in 1878, by seventeen (17) merchants and manufacturers who pre-saged the necessity for an organization to "protect and promote the rights of trademark owners, to secure useful legislation, and to give aid and encouragement to all efforts for the advancement and observance of trademark rights."

According to INTA, there are currently 5,900 trademark owners, professionals and academics, from more than 190 countries, who comprise INTA and its network. With its headquarters located in New York City, INTA also boasts offices in Brussels and Shanghai, as well as representatives in Washington DC, among other places

INTA's annual meeting is, without question, the largest and most prestigious meeting of the international trademark community. Held in May of each year, the annual meeting hosts more than 8,000 participants, from more than 130 countries, for five (5) days of educational programs, committee meetings, exhibits, networking opportunities, and social events.
