About this webinar
Moderator: Leah Evert-Burks
Panelists: Carolina Giuga, Kasie Brill, Andrew Love
PANEL DESCRIPTION: In response to growing pressure on all sides to protect consumers and to make e-commerce more regulated, several pieces of legislation have been proposed in the past several months that attempt to address these issues along with secondary trademark liability, ability to find a seller for damages or liability assessment and other issues. The panel will explore highlights and gaps in the legislation, and what brands may be able to do to provide input.
