Event Description:


With increased access to broadband networks, a proliferation of WiFi sites and a burgeoning smartphone market, Internet usage in some of the ASEAN countries is now surpassing traditional media such as TV, radio and print. Although the internet is an attractive business and marketing platform for many European SMEs working with or in Southeast Asia, it is also an ideal platform for infringers to sell counterfeit products and commit fraud. The Internet provides a low cost method of reaching consumers around the world without revealing identity or origin of operation, meaning that infringers can operate anonymously.

This webinar will introduce the following:


  • The latest developments in Southeast Asia regarding gTDLs (global top-level domain names)
  • Domain name strategy such as 'defensive registrations'
  • Usernames and management of social media accounts
  • Online brand protection and SEO monitoring in Southeast Asia
  • Typosquatting, cybersquatting, and other online threats to your IP in Southeast Asia
