The upcoming ICANN meeting provides a renewed focus on the UDRP, the impact of the GDPR and a resurgence in cybersquatting.
Businesses and consumers are relying more heavily on the internet than ever before and with people spending more time online, cybersquatters are finding a target-rich environment. As a result, UDRP case filings, a potent weapon in brand enforcement, have accelerated.
On Thursday, March 11, 2021, at 12pm ET, join Gene Quinn, twice named one of the top 50 most influential people in the IP world, for a wide-ranging conversation focusing on the upcoming ICANN meeting, the scope of ICANN’s UDRP and the UDRP administrative process, what impact the GDPR has played with respect to combatting cybersquatting, and the implications for intellectual property and brand protection professionals. Joining Gene for this discussion will be two distinguished experts on UDRP, Brian Beckham of WIPO and Doug Isenberg of GigaLaw, in addition to Fred Felman of Appdetex.
In addition to addressing questions from the audience, the panel will discuss:
- Current brand abuse networks and how they are operating today.
- The resurgence in cybersquatting and associated brand abuse.
- GDPR Woes: Why privacy regulations in Europe have made tracking cybersquatters more difficult.
- How these developments have impacted UDRP filings and cases.
