    Over the past few days, you may have heard some chatter about ‘IP Czar’ nomination. No surprising.

    Vishal J. Amin, Senior Counsel on the House Judiciary Committee, has been nominated by President Trump as the next White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator. Amin will be part of Executive office of the President. After confirmation, Amin would succeed Daniel Marti, who handled the responsibility of the IP Enforcement Coordinator during the President Obama’s second regime.

    On behalf of International Intellectual Property Law Association (IIPLA), in the capacity of Director, I welcome his nomination.

    Amin is not new to the government of the United States. He served at various positions in the administration of President George W Bush at the White House, including:
    • Associate Director for Domestic Policy,
    • Special Assistant at the US Department of Commerce and
    • Associate Director for Policy in the Office of the Secretary.

    We believe thoughtful contemplation and prompt appointment for this position is critical for the Intellectual Property Industry. Vishal is smart thoughtful leader and we commend President Trump for his choice.
