SxSW - The Internet: F@#% Free Speech, F@#% Fair Use
In a world where patent and copyright trolls, trademark bullies, fraudsters, and IP and domain squatters abound, what can you do to protect your Internet business? Attendees will gain insight into the mindset and goals of these quasi-villains and learn practical advice and strategies for successfully battling with them – or avoiding them altogether.
The presentation will include an overview of the legal framework that allows trolls/bullies/fraudsters/squatters to thrive; case studies and war stories demonstrating how they might brutalize your company; and effective ways you can avoid and defend against them. Learn how to avoid making your company a target; identify the pressure points of the “bad guys”; and when it makes sense for your company to adopt the tactics of the “enemy.”
