Product description

Intellectual Property Enforcement in the Digital World, 2017 Edition explains the legal implications of the Internet’s infrastructure and teaches you how to look for and interpret the evidence. The chapters are organized by type of problem instead of by legal topic. Many legal professionals can identify a problem in a general way (i.e., as defamation or counterfeiting), but may not be able to identify the wide range of interdisciplinary laws needed to resolve a problem when it occurs on the Internet.

The fact that the Internet is global can create opportunities to gain a strategic advantage. In addition to explaining the legal implications of the Internet’s infrastructure, this title demonstrates how to look for and interpret the evidence. This 2017 Edition also includes a discussion of the laws of Canada and the European e-Commerce Directives in connection with resolving trademarks and copyright problems under their respective laws. A revised list of online investigative tools is also provided for the practitioner.


  • Features a number of topical issues including but not limited to: Internet Jurisdiction, Cybersquatting, Key Word Advertising, Defamation, Copyright, Counterfeiting, and Investigative Techniques
  • Written by a high-profile partner with extensive experience in preventing/prosecuting internet fraud
  • Provides a unique combination of current technology, the state of the law, and remedies available to attorneys to provide their clients with the best and most efficient aid against internet-related crime
