In hotel lobbies and conference centre hallways there is much more of a buzz this year than last at the INTA annual meeting. After two years of cutbacks, trademarks are definitely back. "Hats off to the programme producers," says Brian Banner, veteran trademark attorney who is in town to launch his new firm, H&A IP Law. "There really is something for everyone." Everyone who is interested in trademarks, of course. With 8,000 people in Boston for the meeting, that is a lot of people.
