This CLE webinar will provide strategies for IP counsel to monitor and protect against online sales of counterfeit products. The panel will examine new brand registries that identify legitimate brand goods, review lessons from recent cases, and offer best practices for stopping online infringers.

Description

As the worldwide counterfeiting market continues to spread, IP owners must protect their brand’s value, reputation, and customers. Counterfeit goods are now sold via social media sites. Online sellers use bots to post thousands of images daily and harvest email addresses to create a database of potential customers for counterfeit goods.

Counterfeiting directly impacts a brand owner’s revenue, with lower quality copies flooding the market, damaging the perceived value of the brand and reducing demand (and pricing) for legitimate brand products.

Listen as our authoritative panel reviews the latest trends in online counterfeiting in the context of trademarks and design patents and discusses what IP owners can do to protect against online counterfeiting. The panel will also examine registries that Amazon, eBay, and others offer to identify and safeguard legitimate goods. The panel will outline lessons from recent cases and best practices for policing and protecting against online infringers.
