RE/MAXÂ to have Adam serve on theÂ INTAÂ board of directors,â€ said RE/MAXÂ SVPÂ and chief legal officer, Geoff Lewis. â€œThe RE/MAXÂ trademark is world famous and is our most valuable asset. With the spread of globalization, the importance of protecting trademarks has become an increasingly critical concern.â€
Scoville, who joined the Denver-based company in 2005, has been active withÂ INTAÂ for over seven years and serves as vice chairman of INTAâ€™s Internet committee, which advocates for policies and protections against abusive domain name registrations and phishing and other Internet frauds that employ major brand names.
â€œMost companies donâ€™t have a depth of in-house expertise to draw from when we confront unusual trademark or Internet issues,â€ said Scoville. â€œMy active participation inÂ INTAÂ gives us expertise and resources in confronting unusual trademark abuses on the Internet. It also creates invaluable opportunities to benchmark and cultivate the subject-matter expertise necessary to protect the RE/MAXÂ brand.â€
