REMINDER: Register for ANSI Events by Friday, September 9 and Save 10%


New York, Aug 31, 2005

The American National Standards Institute wishes to remind its members and constituents that all registrations for the 2005 World Standards Week events that are received before the close of business on Friday, September 9, 2005, will be discounted by 10%. There is still time to receive a discount when signing up for the ANSI Annual Conference or other ANSI events in Washington, DC, during the week of October 3-7, 2005.

This year's conference, From A to Veeck: Standardization and the Law , provides an opportunity for anyone involved in the standards process, lawyers and non-lawyers alike, to get up to speed on the legal issues impacting their work. Speakers and panelists will address such topics as antitrust issues, embedded patents and the related patent policies being used within the standards community today. A dialogue on the distinction between Open Source versus Open Standards will shed light on a topic receiving headline coverage in the high-tech industry and raise issues for consideration by other sectors. Updates on legislative initiatives will address topics such as the protection of developers during standards-setting activities; recent developments concerning tort liability in standards development will also be shared. The day will conclude with a review of copyright issues during standards-setting and bring conference attendees up to date on Veeck and its implications.

Other activities during the week include the ANSI Annual Awards Banquet and Ceremony, the ANSI Member Forum meetings, and education and training programs. The "early bird" registration discount applies to all ANSI-sponsored events that week.
