Strategies for Stopping Unauthorized Sales in Foreign Countries

About The Webinar

Domestic and international grey market online sellers are creating havoc for brands, legitimate retailers and distributors. Vorys has developed an effective and scalable approach to identifying and ultimately defeating U.S. -based unauthorized sellers by combining technological, investigative and novel legal tactics into a single, integrated service. Our unique approach has been publicized and shared in our previous webinars and white papers.

International grey market online sellers present a unique challenge to brands. While certain countries have intellectual property laws similar to the U.S., many countries actually promote the gray market and zealously protect the “exhaustion doctrine.” Other countries also have strict competition laws that firmly preclude any perceived restraints imposed by manufacturers.

In this webinar hosted by the Running Industry Association, Daren Garcia, the managing partner of the Vorys Pittsburgh office, who specializes in complex litigation, product diversion, and online seller enforcement, will share strategies and tactics for successfully engaging  the issue of unauthorized sales internationally.

Join us for this 60-minute webinar where he will address:

Strategies for running a cost effective program while identifying the legal theories in particular jurisdictions that will allow for broad-scale enforcement;

Creating a deterrent effect within a foreign market;

Various legal theories based on intellectual property, competition, consumer protects and even criminal laws;

An approach to vet potential partner law firms, as lawyers in other countries, have often not considered how to effectuate broad scale enforcement under their jurisdiction’s laws; and

Examples in a number of countries including Korea, Mexico, Brazil, India, Russia, Thailand.
