My main legal support was Frank Politano, AT&T's Senior Trademark Counsel. I really did not know just how skilled Frank was at brand licensing until I sought him out to see if he could support the proactive expansion of our Brand Licensing function. You see at times Trademark Lawyers may not have a lot of experience in actually doing Trademark Licensing. In Frank's case, he was a tremendous resource for me as he had so much experience he has actually co-authored a book on the topic for Aspen Law: Drafting License Agreements, now in its Fourth Edition. I also negotiated supplementary legal support from my licensing agency as well. It was up to Frank to manage and utilize those additional resources. He did this quite often. I cannot stress enough the value of having a great Trademark Legal team to insure your contracts are drafted in such a way as to fully protect you as the licensor. Fortunately for me, Frank actually left AT&T and is now available for hire to all in the licensing industry at K&L Gates.
Executive Summary, 2 Sept 1999 [cached]
Among other witnesses, the Subcommittee heard from Andrew J. Pincus, General Counsel, U. S. Department of Commerce, and Frank Politano, General Attorney and Trademark and Copyright Counsel for AT&T.
Mr. Politano, on the other hand, fully supported H.R. 1858. Citing AT&T's need to access many databases in many of its operations, he testified that H.R. 1858 represented the necessary balance between preserving protection for the database compiling community and promoting the growth of databases and innovation generally.
