Protecting pharmaceutical innovations from counterfeit attacks
Clarivate Analytics recently released its Cortellis Drugs to Watch 2019 report, which analyzed seven drugs set to enter the market this year and achieve "blockbuster" status ($1 billion in annual sales) by 2023. Blockbuster drugs face great market potential and are often a “make or break” for some pharmaceutical companies, especially those with a limited drug pipeline or small portfolio. As with any new product, they can face an onslaught of competitive challenges in the market, but the one competitor that must not be forgotten is the threat posed by counterfeiters. The pharma industry is one of the most regulated sectors in the... Read More

How Europe plans to protect your content from piracy
When YouTube launched in 2005, its purpose was for users to post interesting and original content that others might like to see. No one expected it to rival traditional TV as an entertainment channel. In fact, Google reports that on mobile alone, YouTube reaches more 18 to 49-year-olds than any broadcast or cable TV network. And its 1.5 billion YouTube users worldwide are consuming over 500 million hours of video every day. However, with this explosion of online video comes the growth of pirated content.

GDPR, WHOIS and impacts to brand protection: Nine months later
Last October, we posted an article describing the impacts of redacted registration data (“WHOIS”) on its domain name protection, anti-counterfeit, anti-piracy, and anti-fraud services. As explained in that post, MarkMonitor uses WHOIS data for several legitimate purposes, including investigating infringing domain names, identifying the source of phishing attacks, and issuing cease & desist letters to cybercriminals, counterfeiters, and infringers. When GDPR became effective, ICANN issued a Temporary Specification for the collection, storage and display of registration data and, since that time, MarkMonitor has been working with registrars and registries to obtain WHOIS data needed to stop infringement and other forms of...
