Why You Should Dial In

Counterfeit infringement over the Internet continues to grow. With the web easing marketing and distribution hurdles, counterfeiters now find it is easier than ever to sell infringing goods anywhere in the United States. Brand owners seeking to compel infringers to defend trademark actions in the owner's home court face personal jurisdictional challenges. Is defendant's sale of one of plaintiff's branded products -- whether infringing or not -- in the local forum, coupled with defendant's sale there via its interactive website of others' branded goods, enough to support personal jurisdiction over the defendant?

In its recent ruling in Chloe v. Queen Bee of Beverly Hills, the Second Circuit said yes. In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our expert panel will discuss the changes Chloe has made in trademark cases to lighten long-arm personal jurisdiction requirements. The panel will also comment on the consequences for all parties resulting from these changes. The panel will further compare Chloe's jurisdictional standards with those in other jurisdictions and provide guidance in response to two questions raised but not answered in Chloe, and will touch on some best practices brand owners may wish to adopt to combat and respond to counterfeiting.

Register now and join us for an engaging discussion on this rapidly developing area of the law.
