Trademark Scams: Protecting Your Brand Online


Trademark owners face threats to their intellectual property assets from all sides. Scammers are using increasingly sophisticated methods to perpetrate phishing schemes, often posing convincingly as legitimate brands to hook their victims. At the same time, scams in which bad actors impersonate trademark offices to extort bogus fees or offer sham registrations are on the rise. These tactics can damage a brand's goodwill and jeopardize its trademarks.

On May 15, please join trademark attorneys Ryan Steinman and Jenifer deWolf Paine for a discussion of how trademark owners can protect their brands from scams. Our hosts will cover the following topics, among others:

  • Recognizing common trademark scams and infringement tactics
  • Investigating bad actors and categorizing various types of unlawful uses
  • Enforcement options and best practices for responding to scams
  • Real-world examples of successful brand protection strategies
