Knockoff Report™ #627: New Orleans, Leadership, and Conspiracy Theories

Knockoff Report™ #627: New Orleans, Leadership, and Conspiracy Theories

So today kicks off Day One of the International Trademark Association’s 2018 Leadership Meeting in New Orleans. By the time you read this, I’ll be on a plane from LAX to NOLA and my brother and COO Jason will flying in from DFW. The INTA Leadership Meeting is comprised committee members from all over the globe gathering to discuss the Association’s objectives and goals, as well as the cutting edge of trademark law, counterfeiting enforcement and branding. Many of the attendees will be excited to visit the birthplace of jazz, and see the museums and sites. Me? I’m a huge fan of multiple award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone and, in particular, his 1991 film JFK. So you’re darned right if you guessed I’m going to visit Lee Harvey Oswald’s old haunts like Guy Bannister’s office and Felix’s Oysters. Whether you are a food lover, jazz fan, or conspiracy theorist, I have a feeling there is something in NOLA for you. If you are there, please drop me an email so we can get together for a coffee, a beer or some jambalaya. And now for the news…
