Andrew will moderate a webinar on Wednesday October 26,2011, sponsored by BNA entitled Alternatives Now Available to Copyright and Trademark Owners to Combat Gray Market and Counterfeit Goods: Recent First Sale and Related Litigation. The 90-minute program will focus on recent 9th and 2d Circuit cases involving the clash between the first sale doctrine and Section 602(a)(1) of the Copyright Act barring the importation of goods made abroad without the copyright holder’s consent. The program will also focus on the alternatives available to trademark holders to deal with the influx of counterfeit goods.
Speaking on these issues will be Scott Bain, Chief Litigation Counsel and Director, Internet Anti-Piracy, Software and Information Industry Association, Washington, DC, Lisa Martens, a partner in the San Diego office of Fish and Richardson and Randi Singer a partner in the NY office of Weil Gotshal.
