Click above for a replay of the GigaLaw webinar, "Cybersquatting and Banking: How the Financial Services Industry Can Protect Itself Online." The webinar was presented live on May 11, 2016. In this free webinar, Doug Isenberg of GigaLaw and Craig Schwartz of fTLD Registry Services provide important information about how domain name fraud is affecting the financial services industries, including banking and insurance, and what businesses and consumers can do to protect themselves online. While some new top-level domains (such as fTLD’s .BANK and .INSURANCE) provide protection for trademark owners, the availability of nearly 1,000 new TLDs is also creating new opportunities for cybersquatters.
As recent news reports indicate, online banking scams are leading to multi-million-dollar losses, so the need has never been greater to safeguard the future of conducting financial transactions on the Internet.
This webinar will explain how trademark owners in the financial services industry (and other frequently targeted business sectors) — as well as anyone who interacts with these industries online — can proactively protect themselves against cybersquatting and use important rights protection mechanisms such as the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS) to respond to online attacks.
Playing time is approximately one hour.
