I am self nominating as both executive board member and secretary for the 2013-2014 term. Its been my pleasure for some years to serve as an Executive Board member. I would like to increase my involvement in the organization by becoming an officer and providing support in achievement of its goals.
I am a US licensed UK qualified attorney; an Ohio native residing in the youngest EU member state, Croatia :) For just about ten years, I have practiced international intellectual property and commercial law.
I founded the Virtual Intellectual Property Organization Inc. (VIPO) in 2007. VIPO continues to provide legal assistance and online dispute resolution management to content creators, IP rights holders and online service providers.
I would appreciate the opportunity to show what I can do for the SLBA as an officer. Thank you for your consideration.
