We are living in a virtual world. Cyberspace is increasingly being used by those who want to create a “Second Life” or trade upon illusion by selling counterfeit or infringing goods. Counterfeiting costs the global economy more than $100 billion every year. “Second Life” is reported to support an economy of over $2 million U.S. in counterfeits per day and $1.3 million U.S. in total goods paid in Linden dollars per day. The Internet provides a faceless marketplace and many hidden alleys for trademark and copyright counterfeiters and infringers. As the urgent problems of online fraud, piracy, counterfeiting, infringement and brand abuse proliferate, brand owners need to be prepared to stop infringers and counterfeiters with more than just “cease and desist” letters. This seminar will discuss the global issues involved in protecting rights on the Internet.


Our speakers for this event are three experts in the field:

Cassels Brock

Fox Williams

Sheppard Mullin
