Another great webinar from the Practical Law Company – this time on protecting IP online – specifically copyrights and trademarks. Here are the details:
Advances in technology and increasing bandwidth have made it easier to deliver all kinds of copyrighted works and conduct many kinds of business over the Internet. However, the increased ability to disseminate works comes with higher risk of intellectual property infringement, and counterfeit goods can easily be advertised and sold through web sites located in jurisdictions outside the U.S. With the pending addition of new gTLDs, opportunities for cybersquatting and trademark infringement are increased even more. Accordingly, it is imperative that in-house counsel and their advisors understand how to protect themselves in this increasingly risky environment.
Join Practical Law Company, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP and Copyright Clearance Center for a free webinar exploring strategies for protecting copyright and trademarks from online infringement. Among other topics, this webinar will cover:
Understanding the risks: an overview of current trends in counterfeiting and challenges presented by the new gTLDs
Strategies for policing trademarks on the Internet and identifying counterfeiters
Steps businesses can take to pursue legal action against counterfeiters
Techniques for policing online copyright infringement
Using tools for protecting copyright online, including registration, watermarks, access controls and more
Ways to address online copyright infringement
Strategies for monetizing content as it travels through the Web while minimizing infringement risk
A short Q&A session will follow the main presentation.
