Help your clients protect their intellectual property and enforce their rights in halting the sale of counterfeit and infringing goods.
As the internet has become global in scope, nefarious actors such as counterfeiters have expanded their operations beyond traditional outlets such as flea markets, street corners, and mall kiosks. Online counterfeiters are difficult to identify, receive payments digitally, operate across numerous digital locations, and they are able disappear with ease. They also benefit from some of the same technological advances utilized by brand owners, including search engine optimization, the use of images pasted from legitimate digital locations, and the temptation of retailers to host sellers who generate revenue. This topic helps identify steps that brand owners can take, either with new brands or established ones, to register, monitor, and enforce their valuable trademark and copyright rights in the setting of cyberspace.
