The problem of counterfeit goods sold online is not limited to designer apparel and luxury goods, but this sector is unduly burdened. As a result, best practices for taking the offensive have emerged. Our expert on intellectual property and commercial law will outline basic tactics all e-retailers must deploy – plus some more advanced maneuvers – to protect the brand, margins and profit.
