Washington in April for
Intellectual Property Institute
In the international area, traditional concepts of in-
tellectual property, licensing, and technology transfer
are being challenged and re-examined, in light of the
pace of technical change and the burgeoning of con-
flicting ideologies. In the Paris Convention, and
through the framing of international codes of con-
duct, the differing approaches to these issues by the
industrialized and developing nations are being de-
bated. Important changes have occurred in the gov-
ernmental policies of the Soviet Union, China and
Mexico toward licensing and intellectual property
rights. Significant developments have taken place in
techniques for resolving disputes in agreements with
Eastern Bloc countries and Japan. There have been
important shifts in the antitrust policies of the United
States and the European economic community con-
cerning licensing. New problems and techniques have
been encountered by the music, publishing and film
industries in licensing copyrights abroad.
These and related topics will be the subject of a two-
day ABA National Institute to be held at The Hyatt
Regency Hotel, Washington, D.C., on Thursday and
Friday, April 5 and 6, 1979. Registration fee: ABA
members, $200; Non-members, $225; Government
employees and professors, $175; Law Students, $40.
Further information may be obtained from National
Institutes, 1155 E. 60th St., Chicago, IL 60637.

Your Help Needed
On December 6, 1978 at the White House Obser-
vance of Human Rights Day, President Carter urged
the U.S. Senate to support ratification of the Geno-
cide Convention. He thus followed the recommenda-
tions of every President since Harry Truman. The
American Bar Association has recorded its endorse-
ment upon the recommendation of this Section but
apathy may further delay action in the new Senate
session.
Every Section member is urged to write now to both
his senators urging that the treaty be promptly
brought onto the floor for a vote. It is essential that
Senators know their constituents seek Senate action.
Your letters would help attain the Association's objec-
tive of ratification.
