The D.C. Bar Intellectual Property Law Community is naming Maria A. Pallante, the former head of the Copyright Office, recipient of the 2017 Champion of Intellectual Property Award, according to a press statement from the Association of American Publishers.
Pallante, who has served as president and CEO of the AAP since January, served as the register of copyrights from 2011-2016. The leadership of the IP Law Community said in their letter to Pallante that her “work in the private sector and public sector has made a lasting mark in the intellectual property field.”
Chief Judge Sharon Prost of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is set to host the July 19 reception where Pallante will receive the award. Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte (R-Va.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee is slated to give remarks. F. Scott Kieff, a former commissioner of the International Trade Commission, will deliver the keynote address.
Before her tenure at the Copyright Office, Pallante was IP counsel to the Guggenheim Museums, executive director of the National Writers Union, and assistant director of the Authors Guild. She earned her law degree at George Washington University.
Carla D. Hayden, who took over as librarian of Congress in July 2016, removed Pallante from her position as head of the Copyright Office in October 2016. Goodlatte and other members of Congress expressed concern over Pallante’s removal. Earlier this year, the House passed legislation that would take away the authority of the librarian of Congress to hire and fire the register of copyrights and make it a presidential appointment.
