Thursday, December 9, 2021 - 12:00 PM ET

Perhaps nowhere in the intellectual property world is the old saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure more accurate than with respect to domain names.

Attacks against domain names and domain registration accounts can deliver devastating consequences to brand reputation, to customer trust and to the bottom line. With cybersquatting and other online threats on the rise worldwide, online assets are more vulnerable than ever.

Brand owners face growing challenges in protecting their customers and their brand online, both in terms of volume and complexity of attack vectors. Organizations today must ensure their defensive domain portfolio sufficiently prevents likely infringement, while monitoring and prioritizing threats which warrant enforcement. In order to avoid prolonged litigation, and the irreparable harm to brand value resulting from infringement, brand owners need to understand what tools and services are available in the evolving domain name space.

Join Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc., for a wide-ranging conversation on Thursday, December 9, 2021, at 12:00 PM ET, relating to how brand owners can achieve trademark protection without taking on the portfolio bloat and cost historically associated with defensive domain registrations. Joining the conversation will be Kristen Ruisi, a trademark attorney with Venable LLP, Cyntia King, CEO & Founder at ModernIP, and Brian King, Head of Government and Industry Relations at Clarivate.

During this webinar the panel will discuss:

  • The most important domain name and online brand protection developments of 2021,
  • New top-level domains (TLDs) that will be soon launching,
  • How brand owners can use such tools as domain blocking to prevent infringement cost-effectively in a large and growing number of TLDs,
  • Best practices for monitoring and enforcement against identified infringement and other cyber threats,
  • Why every brand owner must be willing to enforce against bad actors in select cases, and how to do so cost-effectively.
