This is our last panel, and the object is to bring a number of experts, including practitioners and academics, from the United States and from abroad, to react to the two proposals that we just heard. Each of the panelists will give initial comments, and then we are going to go around the table again so that our panelists can react to one another’s comments. We will go in the following order: First, Amy Cotton from the Patent and Trademark Office. She’s our government representative. Next, Bob Weigel, at the far end, who is with Gibson Dunn and represented Gucci in the Gucci v. Frontline case.1 Bob will be speaking, I suspect, from the brand owner point of view.
