Wassom will serve a two-year term on the committee, which seeks to increase the interest and involvement of AIPLA members in copyright law and to improve copyright policy, legislation and jurisprudence by working directly with the U.S. Copyright Office and other government agencies and by providing input to Congress and the courts. He also leads the group’s subcommittee on Copyright Office Modernization.
Wassom, who also serves on AIPLA's 19-member editorial board for the AIPLA Quarterly Journal, is an active writer who has published more than 35 articles, essays and other contributions to publications such as Forbes and The Journal of Arts Management Law & Society. His first book, Augmented Reality Law, Privacy and Ethics, was recently published by Syngress.
At Warner Norcross, Wassom focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation and intellectual property litigation. In addition to copyright, trademark and product liability, he is experienced in disputes including social and emerging media, publicity rights, defamation, unfair competition, First Amendment matters and false and deceptive advertising.
Active professionally, Wassom is a member of the Federal Bar Association, where he co-chairs the Intellectual Property Committee, and the State Bar of Michigan. He is also a member of the American Bar Association and the Macomb County Bar Association.
Wassom practices in both the firm’s Southfield and Macomb offices.
