China Product Counterfeiting: Using UDRP To Shut Down The Website
Our law firm has in the last year had probably twice as many counterfeit matters as in any prior year. Not sure if this is because counterfeiting is on the increase or if it is just because American companies are getting so sick of it that they are becoming more likely to take action. Most of these matters involve Chinese companies shipping counterfeit product into the United States.
There are all sorts of ways to try to shut down Chinese counterfeiters but today’s post focuses on only one of those: trying to shut down the counterfeiter’s domain name. In a subsequent post we will talk about using a Section 337 action before the International Trade Commission.
