Trademark Counterfeiting in 2021 (02/17/2021)

Program Number: 3135 Presenter: Anthony F. Lo Cicero, Esq.

The old tactics of anticounterfeiting enforcement against street vendors and flea market operators have largely been replaced with online takedown notices, mass litigations against unnamed defendants and border enforcement. On the flip side, the “counterfeiting” label is being applied to activities different from what we have seen in the past, as reflected in the Second Circuit’s decision in Tiffany & Co. v. Costco Wholesale Corp. and elsewhere. Join Tony Lo Cicero, Managing Partner of Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein as he discusses these developments and their likely impact for the future.

What is “Authorized Access” and How Do Employers Deal with Misuse of Access Credentials Post-VanBuren vs United States (02/03/2021)

Program Number: 3122 Presenter: Michelle A. Schaap, Esq.

As this summary is being written on December 1, 2020, the United States Supreme Court is considering the fate of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (“CFAA”) in Van Buren v. United States. CFAA had been used by employers in certain circuit courts successfully to hold employees accountable for misuse and/or misappropriation of employers’ data to which the employees were otherwise authorized to access in the course of their employment. At the time this program is presented, we expect the Court will have rendered its ruling in Van Buren. Regardless of the fate of the CFAA, employers can and should employ other means, statutorily, contractually, and technologically, to protect their trade secrets and other confidential and proprietary information from misuse, exfiltration and alteration. Moreover, for employers who are attorneys, they are ethically required to not only keep client information confidential, but to stay abreast technology that may facilitate the protection of

To Embed, or Not to Embed, that is the Question (01/22/2021)

Program Number: 3114 Presenter: Michael D. Hobbs, Jr. Esq., Shaleen J. Patel, Esq.

A discussion on an increasingly tumultuous area of on-line copyright law. The discussion focuses on a trend where courts are increasingly allowing cases to proceed on the merits in instances of media publishers embedding, a practice of displaying content from one platform into another without actually hosting the underlying content. For years, such a practice seemed safe under the Ninth Circuit’s “server test.” However, districts in other circuits are rejecting that the server test is settled law and questioning the legality of embedding. As social media makes embedding content a more available feature, this broadcast discusses the risks of continuing to embed content without first acquiring permission and possible alternatives.

Program Number: 3054 Presenter: Raman N. Dewan, Esq., Christopher J. Rourk, Esq.

Drafting Licensing and Development Agreements to Avoid Expensive Legal Disputes. In Romag v. Fossil, the parties have found themselves heading to the Supreme Court to resolve a legal issue. Is that because there is a split in authority between the circuits, or because the agreement failed to protect against the dispute? This webinar will discuss key clauses where such disputes are likely to arise and will address due diligence and drafting best practices that can help to identify such issues and prevent extended and expensive litigation. Many of these issues relate to patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, and the webinar will help the general practitioner to identify the key issues pertaining to each of these four types of intellectual property and to avoid wasting time and negotiating positions arguing over issues that are not important.

The Six Stages of Trade Secret Misappropriation Protection (11/18/2020)

Program Number: 30246 Presenter: David L. Cohen, Esq., Michael J. Kasdan, Esq. - Wiggin and Dana LLP, Donal O'Connell

This presentation examines considerations for an effective trade secret asset management through the prism of trade secret misappropriation, examining how to approach the question of what to protect as a trade secret and how and whether a company would safeguard and enforce its IP if there were a misappropriation. There are six sequential stages of consideration: Recognition, Detectability, Provability, Specificity, Correlation, and Mitigation. (Any similarity to “The Six Stages of Grief” is purely coincidental. In fact, following these six stages is designed to avoid grief on the part of the trade secret holder when the time arises to pursue a claim of trade secret misappropriation.)
