Janet Fries, counsel in Washington, will participate on a District of Columbia Bar's luncheon panel, “The ABC’s of IP: A Primer on Patent, Copyright and Trademark Law,” on July 24 at the D.C.

Cost for section members, summer associates, clerks and government or nonprofit employees is $10; non-section members pay $15. Janet, co-chair of the D.C. Bar’s Steering Committee for the Arts, Entertainment, Media and Sports Law Section and vice chair of the section’s Arts and Cultural Committee, focuses her practice on copyright and trademark law, entertainment law and Internet law.
