Course Description

In this seminar, Amy Goldsmith, Co-Chair of the Intellectual Property Practice at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin LLP, deconstructs typical website terms and conditions and explains why separate policies are needed in different territories and the responsibilities of the website owner in each territory. Ms. Goldsmith will review the impact in the U.S. of the 2018 European Union GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and of the upcoming California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). She also focuses on the uptick in lawsuits based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) against businesses for failing to have accessible website and mobile apps. Lastly, Ms. Goldsmith explains how competitors can legally use each other’s trademarks as AdWords in the USA and Europe.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Break down the requirements for website terms and conditions in the USA, EU, and Asia
  2. Identify the responsibilities of the website owner in each territory and the consequences if the website owner does not comply
  3. Discuss the ADA litigations nationwide and provide best practice tips
  4. Review the rules regarding how your trademark and your competitors’ trademarks can be used as AdWords

Amy Goldsmith

Tarter Krinsky & Drogin LLP

Successful, profitable businesses share certain characteristics: immediately recognizable brands, desirable products or services, and a strategic plan which minimizes legal risks. As co-chair of the Intellectual Property Group at Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Amy B. Goldsmith partners with clients to provide practical legal advice and connections to grow their businesses. A strategic advisor, she guides clients in all stages of their development from idea conception and protection, to funding, manufacturing and enforcement.

She will advise you whether your trademark is available in the United States and globally, if patents should be a part of your strategy, and if your design team’s new product shares too many features of the competition’s copyrighted bestseller. She will design contracts that make sense. Amy will also guide you through the clearance process, whether the subject matter is books, movies or live action. If a dispute is on the horizon, she will be by your side until a fair resolution is reached. If knock-offs are all over social media platforms, Amy will help you take them down.

Amy protects the global interests of national and international clients in a wide variety of industries, including fashion, jewelry, cosmetics, food and nutraceuticals, pet products, publishing, medical devices, exercise equipment, web-based business applications and telecommunications platforms, and consumer and designer goods. Amy will help you design privacy policies and terms of use that make sense in the global world in which you operate.

She has been a Vice President of the New York Women's Bar Association and currently is Co-Chair of the CLE Committee. She is also a member of the American Bar Association and the International Trademark Association (INTA) and is on the Board of Directors of Savvy Ladies, a non-profit whose mission is to educate women to be financially savvy. Amy also was a speaker at and served on the Advisory Board for TedxTimesSquare.

Before joining Tarter Krinsky & Drogin, Amy was a partner at Gottlieb, Rackman & Reisman, P.C.
