A Practical Guide from Start-up to Global Success
Chapter 20: If someone copies you
This chapter looks at the important strategic and practical concerns following the discovery of infringing activity. It covers everything from checking that you own the rights to getting the timing and registration position sorted out. This chapter looks at the exhaustion of intellectual property rights (first sale doctrine in the US) and the ways in which online takedowns can be used as well as the potential for working with administrative enforcement or the criminal justice system. It then looks in more detail at the specific issues to be aware of in terms of trade mark, designs and copyright infringement, passing off and unfair competition. It finishes by looking at domain names and the various means for resolving those disputes such as the UDRP or URS.
