The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring educational and media events throughout the Los Angeles area focusing on the costs and safety threats of counterfeiting and piracy. Each day's events will address a specific topic including the impact of this growing problem on California's small- and medium-size businesses.

The August 21 event at the Grand at Willow Street Centre in Long Beach will include presentations on law-enforcement efforts to stop counterfeiting/piracy, recommendations on how to best protect your intellectual property and first-hand accounts on lessons learned the hard way. Speakers will include officials from Customs, the Department of Justice and the Patent & Trademark Office, along with patent/trademark attorneys. The events are free, but advance registration is required.
