Webinar: The growing use of injunctions to enforce across online platforms

Wednesday 24 June, 10am – 10:45am

In today’s world, infringers increasingly use the services of online intermediaries for the purpose of their infringing activities. Due to difficulties with identifying, contacting and enforcing IP rights against online infringers themselves, it is often the intermediaries who are in the best position to help block further and ongoing infringement. It is now well-settled that copyright and trade mark owners may seek to enforce injunctions against ISPs and other intermediaries, in order to enforce their rights against infringers online.

In this webinar, we will recap on the development of the routes available for copyright owners to enforce their rights online; the expansion of this remedy to address counterfeits and trade mark infringement online, and the impact of the most recent case law in this area, including the CJEU’s recent decision in Coty v Amazon. We will also consider upcoming developments, such as the possibility for further expansion of brand owners’ rights to seek redress for infringements against online marketplace operators as primary infringers, rather than as intermediaries, in certain situations. We will cover the civil options available under the law, as well as the practical steps which IP owners can take to address infringements online.

This webinar will focus on the position under UK/ EU law.
