Held on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, 1 pm - 2 pm ET

With some background information on the takedown mechanisms for major online platforms, and a focus on practical tips for using takedown mechanisms, at the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify different online infringements (specifically trademark, copyright, fraud) and potential takedown mechanisms
  • Advise their clients on whether/how to use these mechanisms may be used to enforce IP rights online
  • Use takedown mechanisms to their best effect
