Keeping & Enforcing Rights in the Age of Amazon

Keeping & Enforcing Rights in the Age of Amazon

Many tales illustrate how large companies use lawsuits and PTAB challenges to wage war against small inventors by effectively stealing products that have been featured at trade shows, on QVC, on Shark Tank, or if they cross a certain threshold via Kickstarter. Panelists will discuss various strategies to protect products using all available forms of intellectual property (i.e., utility patents, design patents, trademarks, and copyrights) and the pros/cons of each, as well as tactics for distributing through online marketplaces, like Amazon, and working with those online marketplaces if/when IP issues arise.
