On November 25, Wiramrudee (Pink) Mokkhavesa, a partner in Tilleke & Gibbins’ intellectual property group in Bangkok, joined a panel in an ASEAN IPA webinar titled “Online Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights.” Together the panelists discussed the impact of internet-based technologies and possible strategies for tackling infringement in the ASEAN region. Wiramrudee, who represented Thailand, was joined on the panel by speakers from Singapore and Vietnam.
The webinar provided an overview of the online counterfeit trade and how it affects all types of businesses, from multinationals to SMEs, and discussed the most relevant current and future online counterfeiting threats. Panelists then exchanged views on approaches to dealing with these emerging online infringement risks to ensure that attendees are prepared to face the latest counterfeiting and infringement trends. The session concluded with a Q&A session and a closing statement by the moderator.
