Donna Bailer attended a ceremonial bill signing

Donna Bailer attended a ceremonial bill signing with Governor Bob Riley at the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery on May 21, 2010. The signing marked the passage of recent legislation to revise Alabama's Trademark Act and honored Lee Huffaker (deceased), a member of the Alabama Law Institute's Model State Trademark Act committee. Donna was a member of the ALI Model State Trademark Act committee.

The bill revised the current state law to adopt the USPTO classifications of goods and services, provide for renewal of registration of a mark, provide additional remedies when dilution of a mark occur, and increase the damages for a trademark violation.
