“ The global plague of falsified medicines and vaccines”

Geoffroy Bessaud, AVP, Anti-counterfeiting Coordination

Why should you protect your brand’s digital image assets?
Over 2 billion images are shared on the Internet each day, 85% of which are thought to be infringed. The Internet has become like the wild west when it comes to the still image with a complete disregard of copyright. Right click save, drag and dropping images has become the norm, but what happens when your brand images are taken without your knowledge or consent, and used to sell counterfeit products or placed on websites or next to features you'd rather not be associated with. This can lead to bad customer experiences and reviews, and degradation of your brand persona. In this seminar we will look at these challenges and what can be done to overcome them.
Robert Sewell,CEO
