Conference to cover counterfeit auto parts, trade secrets
The auto industry and Michigan’s business community have been growing more concerned in recent years about counterfeit automotive parts, computer intrusions and trade secrets -- and federal prosecutors have taken action.
Industry, government and academic leaders will discuss how to detect counterfeit parts and other topics during the Protecting Michigan’s Technology conference Sept. 25 at Schoolcraft College’s VisTaTech Center, 18600 Haggerty Rd. in Livonia, Mich.
U.S. Attorney’s offices for the eastern and western districts of Michigan are sponsoring the free conference.
The conference takes place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
In-house lawyers, security professionals and law firms representing the auto, defense, computer and chemical industries are invited to attend.
Private and university researchers, computer and intellectual property crime investigators, law enforcement agents and officers also are welcome.
