Litigating Internet-Based IP Claims: How to Protect and Defend What is Yours

We hope you join us for the inaugural seminar of Davis & Gilbert's Intellectual Property Litigation Group. With the ever increasing pervasiveness of social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter in marketing efforts, and the growing use of search engine keyword advertising programs, such as Google's AdWords, more and more intellectual property disputes involve internet-based legal issues. It is now more crucial than ever for companies to understand how to protect their IP when it is being used on the Internet without consent and how best to defend against a claim of infringement when displaying materials on the Internet as part of a marketing campaign. To help you understand the nuances of litigating internet-based IP claims, this program will cover, among other things:

  • Recent developments in internet-based IP law, including:
    - Can the use of keyword advertising be infringement?
    - Does the posting of materials on social media websites such as 
      Facebook and Twitter relinquish all of one's IP rights to those
    - Can the government shut down your website without advance
      notice for claims of infringement?
  • How to conduct a thorough investigation of a potential internet-based IP claim
  • How to use discovery to determine who to sue for the unauthorized use of your IP
  • Potential claims that may be available to an IP rights owner
  • Types of defenses available to respond to a claim of infringement for use of materials on the Internet
