Red Points, in partnership with Managing IP hosted a webinar on April 7 at 9am PDT / 12pm EDT / 5pm BST to discuss best practices in uncovering and dismantling large-scale counterfeiters

 


 

Whether you are a general counsel or a brand protection expert dealing with a lot of infringers you are probably wondering: how can I identify who is threatening my brand the most, and make the biggest impact for my business? 

Several years ago, Wahl Clippers faced a similar conundrum. With products sold across more than 165 countries, it was simply not practical or possible to pursue every listing that sold counterfeits of the company's patented products. 

This is why Wahl Clippers implemented a new brand protection strategy that prioritises large-scale counterfeiters instead of smaller distributors in order to make a bigger impact. By combining online and offline data – and being more strategic in the way they used their resources to target large-scale infringers – they have been able to see real tangible impact in their brand protection efforts worldwide. 

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What top actions Wahl Clippers’ legal team is taking to uncover and dismantle large-scale counterfeiters;

  • How Wahl Clippers is leveraging data from multiple sources including Red Points’ brand protection software in order to zero in on infringers; and  

  • Best practices to bridge the gap between online and offline investigation to act against physical factories, wholesalers, and seller networks.

The 50-minute webinar was moderated by Red Points’ VP of Brand Relationships, Daniel Shapiro, and Wahl Clippers Corporation’s IP attorney, Atika Prasad, as a guest speaker. The webinar was followed by a Q&A session.
