The Intellectual Property Section was organized in September 2000 in order to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information among Mississippi lawyers engaged in the practice of intellectual property law. Members' interests include copyright, patent, and trademark law, as well as the less traditional areas of internet law, computer related issues, and information technology law in general. The section has conducted and will continue to conduct CLE seminars to assist its members in their understanding of these areas of practice.
