Brand Protection: Preventing and Frustrating Counterfeiters

Please note the November CLE will be held at the Backstage Event Center, located at 625 Walnut Street (above Horse & Barrel and across the street from the Aronoff Center).

Join us on November 12, 2019 for a discussion with Tiffany Shepard of Procter & Gamble. Ms. Shepard will discuss P&G’s Brand Protection program, how IP protections translate in the law enforcement world, and how to abate counterfeiting activities.

Brand protection online is now more challenging than ever. In addition to seeking trademark protection for your brand, both large and growing companies need to ensure that protections are in place to prevent counterfeiting by online resellers across the internet.

This CLE will cover the billion-dollar, underground industry of counterfeiting and ways to prevent and frustrate it. 

Register here by Monday, November 11 at noon.
