IPCybercrime CEO Rob Holmes to Speak at International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition

PHOTO Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding invitations

robiprsummitThe International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition’s spring meeting is in Dallas, Texas this year. That means New York lawyers will be kicking back and eating barbecue for a few days. As part of the program, they tapped IPCybercrime’s CEO Rob Holmes to speak on his expertise where trademarks and the Internet collide.

To kick off the conference, on May 1st, Holmes will present one of his most popular talks “The Virtual Crime Scene: Website Analysis”. In this presentation, Rob will explain his procedure when a client first sends over a new case. He will detail: What to record as the “first responder”, how to grab data along the way, and how collecting small pieces of data case help save your case. Since all of his cases begin online, this is the keystone of his business. Listen as Rob gives you a glimpse of his day-to-day case intake for Internet counterfeiting cases.

On the closing day, Friday May 3rd, Rob will join a panel of experts for a presentation entitled “Social Media and New Technology”. Technology is advancing at a feverish rate. The next generation of counterfeiters will have grown up using
social media in their everyday lives prior to even commencing their illegal enterprise. In order to stay ahead of
the curve, you need to embrace this fast-paced environment before it’s too late. This discussion will explore the newest trends in counterfeiting and social media and provide an outlook into the future of technology to help
you ‘meet & greet’ the ever-changing challenge ahead. The moderator will be David Lipkus of Kestenberg, Siegal, Lipkus LLP and they will be joined by David Benjamin, Senior Vice President, Anti-Piracy, Universal Music.

If you plan on attend this conference, come and check it out.  Rob’s talks are always fun and educational.
