Mr.Cai Weiping, President of the Policy and Compliance Department of Internet DotTrademark Organisation (IDTO) delivered a keynote speech on trademark protection in the Internet era at the Forum, and exchanged views with top intellectual property experts at home and abroad.
In his speech, Mr.Cai Weiping first introduced the challenges and existing problems of trademark rights protection on various Internet platforms appearing in China, which aroused the attention and heated discussion of the guests. Mr.Cai pointed out that the regional trademark registration system and the adoption of the “First to File” principle in most regions has led to the frequent occurrence of “trademark squatting” in many regions of the world, especially in China. At the same time, Internet applications have the characteristics of cross-regional and rapid dissemination, which makes the effective application and protection of trademarks in the Internet era is complex and variable. DotTrademark “.商标“ is an intellectual property project of great significance in the new era, providing a new solution of trademark application on the Internet by innovating trademark protection mechanism to enable consumers to quickly and accurately identify genuine services and products on the Internet.
Mr.Dennis Cai proposed that brand owners must first have the awareness of enhancing the protection and security application of trademark rights on the Internet. In addition, it is necessary to implement a two-handed strategy. On the one hand, in the event of a violation of trademark rights, it is necessary to actively defend rights through various effective legal channels; on the other hand, it is necessary to place great emphasis on the registration and use of DotTrademark domain names that are friendly to trademark rights.
Mr. Cai’s speech was well received, and representatives of a number of well-known law firms expressed their willingness to work with The Internet DotTrademark Organisation to promote the registration and application of DotTrademark domain name worldwide.
