Mitigating Online Threats to Brands

1:00PM – 2:00PM | January 29, 2010 | Washington, DC

Online brand issues are off to a quick start in 2010. Senator Urquhart’s Utah E-Commerce Integrity Act already is under consideration and if passed may be a harbinger of changes to the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) at the federal level. What are the politics behind this legislative initiative? Who wins and loses? 2010 also is the first full year for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) under the Affirmation of Commitments (AOC). How will ICANN respond? What major policy decisions will be made? At this CADNA policy forum, Senator Urquhart, policy experts, and US congressional staff presented their views on how 2010 is shaping up.
