27th Annual Intellectual Property Law Conference

Obtaining and Enforcing Asset Freeze Orders and Similar Remedies Against Online Counterfeiters

The session will cover the requirements for and mechanics of obtaining and enforcing ex parte asset freeze orders and similar remedies against online counterfeiters, in particular against companies that use multiple websites, or have the ability to quickly shut down one website and open another to avoid. The panel will include attorney Neil Smith, who not only represented Reebok International, Ltd. in the leading case authorizing federal courts to freeze a counterfeiter’s assets under the Lanham Act, but also obtained the first on-line asset freeze against a counterfeiter; and attorney Scott Gelin, who obtained one of the most recent asset freeze orders from the Southern District of New York on behalf of his client Tory Burch.  Hear from these experts and everyday practitioners about how to obtain and enforce this valuable tool in the arsenal against trademark counterfeiters.
