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.

What are some of the efforts taken by in-house counsel to protect and enforce their intellectual property rights when they, their domestic and foreign licensees, and distributors, or others elect to market their brands via social media websites? The decision to host user-generated interactive content on one’s own site versus a well-established third-party social media site will be addressed, as will quality control provisions in domestic and cross-border licensing agreements and their relationship to trademark usage guidelines, social media policies and best practices.

Rob Holmes SpeakingIn Rob Holmes’ segment he will be laying the foundation of how trademarks and social media affect e-commerce on a daily basis.  From Facebook and Twitter to eBay and Craigslist, Social Media and e-commerce are blending together in this connected society.  This presentation combines Rob’s professional and personal passions: Intellectual Property protection and Social Media.  He will be joined by a panel of distinguished experts including Matthew Asbell (Ladas & Parry LLP), Robert Doerfler (SVP Worldwide), Fawn Horvath (Macy’s Inc.) and Kelly Slavitt (Reckitt Benckiser).
