INTA elects Adobe counsel as president
The International Trademark Association (INTA) has elected Scott Evans as president and chair of its board of directors.

Evans is currently associate general counsel at Adobe Systems and is responsible for all legal and strategy issues relating to trademarks, copyright, brands, domains and Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) policy.

He also serves as the company’s global advertising and marketing counsel and is responsible for all contests, promotions and sweepstakes.

Evans commented: “There are a number of important issues that INTA, and indeed the global trademark community, will focus on this year.”

“No doubt the transition of ICANN governance away from the US government will continue to hold our attention for a few years to come.”

Evans takes over from Mei-lan Stark, who served as INTA president during 2014.
