On Tuesday, September 22, 2009, Foley attorneys Jon W. Dudas and Norm J. Rich will speak to members of the Association of Corporate Counsel on “Protecting Your Brand Online – Latest Developments and Techniques”.

Program Overview
In a virtual world littered with squatters and trolls, keeping up with entities that can threaten your organization's good name online can be a daunting task. Engaging in the protection of your brand is an even more arduous and potentially costly task, provided you can even locate the entity responsible for an infringement. As the rules and regulations of the cyber evolution continue to take shape it is more important than ever to understand all aspects of your company's online presence. This program will explore recent brand abuse schemes and their impact as well as recent Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) and Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) decisions. Panelists will also discuss the current standards of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) and how recent Implementation Recommendation Team (IRT) proposals related to new generic top level domains (gTLDs) can protect brand owners as they face a possible influx of new top level domains (TLDs). Finally, techniques for brand owners in handling cyber squatting issues will be addressed along with strategies for preventing future problems.

Moderated by Jon W. Dudas, Partner, Foley & Lardner LLP
