It is estimated that counterfeiting is a $600 billion a year problem. As the production and sale of counterfeit goods (ie fake designer purses) continues to increase, it is important that attorneys practicing in this area of the law know how to evaluate and litigate a counterfeiting claim. In this illuminating presentation, experienced intellectual property attorneys David Kalow and Milton Springut examine prevalent issues in counterfeiting law involving internet sales, investigator purchases of counterfeit goods, and the removal of UPC codes and serial numbers. Mr. Kalow and Mr. Springut elucidate several recent federal Supreme Court and Circuit opinions credited with expanding options for the investigation and litigation of counterfeiting cases, including the ground-breaking Second Circuit trademark infringement decision, Chloe v. Queen Bee. In addition, Mr. Kalow and Mr. Springut discuss a number of innovative litigation strategies designed to maximize monetary awards, and shed light on the concepts of contributory infringement and vicarious liability. Demonstrating keen insight into the law and a fervent desire for increased enforcement, Mr. Kalow and Mr. Springut provide viewers with the information they need to successfully combat intellectual property theft.
