Luca Hickman Addresses Protecting Online Intellectual Property to National Coffee Association
Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A., is pleased to share that Florida Bar Board Certified Intellectual Property Law Attorney Luca Hickman presented a webinar on November 17 to the National Coffee Association entitled “Digital IP: Helping Coffee Companies Protect, Defend and Recover Intellectual Property Rights Online.” Digital IP protection is often overlooked and can lead to third party infringement or loss of domain. Hickman urges the importance of proactive IP defense:
“Social media and other online marketing efforts have become cornerstones of business advertising. Sadly, many businesses fail to protect such efforts until it is too late. It was my pleasure to share some helpful strategies for defending these and other forms of digital intellectual property with the National Coffee Association.”
