SEMA Joins Effort to Combat Online Piracy

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) is working with the Coalition Against Counterfeiting and Piracy (CACP), U.S. Chamber of Commerce, labor organizations, large employers, and small businesses to support legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate to help shut down rogue websites that sell counterfeit goods.   Entitled the "Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act" (PROTECT IP), the bill would authorize the Justice Department to obtain court orders requiring search engines in the United States to stop displaying links to domain names.

Washington State Enacts SEMA Street Rod/Custom Vehicle Bill Into Law

Washington joined the growing list of states to enact SEMA model legislation to amend the vehicle titling and registration classification for street rods and create a classification for custom vehicles.. The bill was approved by the Washington State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Christine Gregoire.  Under the new law, a street rod is defined as an altered vehicle manufactured before 1949 and a custom as an altered vehicle at least 30 years old and manufactured after 1948.  Importantly, kit cars and replica vehicles will be assigned a certificate of title bearing the same model year designation as the production vehicle they most closely resemble.
