Abstract: 

Corporate competitors and disgruntled individuals are now increasingly using the internet as a platform to make attacks on the owners of intellectual property and related rights. The disputes are usually grounded in the laws of intellectual property and associated causes of action but the internet continues to evolve which offers new challenges to enforcement. The areas to be covered in this talk include what are the traditional forms of intellectual property? What are the related forms of rights associated with intellectual property? How is the internet being used as a platform to damage such intellectual property and related rights? What are the challenges to enforcement when the internet is used as a platform? How to enforce such intellectual property and related rights when the internet is involved?
