Introduction to Cybersquatting - What the Heck Is It & How Do You Prevail at It?

 

Introduction to Cybersquatting - What the Heck Is It & How Do You Prevail at It?

Before the Internet, there was no such thing as cybersquatting. But once the Internet came into existence, domain-name disputes soon followed. Although cybersquatting does not fit into the traditional trademark paradigm, in 1999 Congress passed The Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act ("ACPA"), 15 U.S.C. 1125(d), and it became part of the Lanham Act, 15 U.S.C. 1051 et seq., which is the primary federal trademark statute in the United States. The ACPA established a legal recourse for entities who are the victims of others registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name that is confusingly similar to, or dilutive of, an entity's trademark or a person's name. In this "Introduction to Cybersquatting", attorneys learn the origins and history of cybersquatting, as well as the elements of the cause of action. Participants will also analyze several cases in which courts have addressed cybersquatting at various stages of litigation.

The Anatomy of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act

by Jason Potter
Millions of uninsured people in the United States have the right to receive emergency medical care thanks to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Signed into law by President Reagan in 1986 and still in force today, EMTALA provided the first limited federal right to health care regardless of ability to pay. In this survey of EMTALA, we dissect the “golden rule of the emergency room” and introduce the major statutory and regulatory mandates, as well as case law interpretations thereof. In that vein, we also cover hot-button issues and present some of the top compliance challenges for hospitals.

Public support for legalized cannabis is at an all-time high, and at least 33 states have legalized it in some fashion. In light of the booming cannabis industry and the significant regulatory challenges that cannabis-related businesses face, the need for legal advice is industry-wide. However, giving cannabis-related legal advice can raise some hazy ethical issues for attorneys, due in part to the continued illegality of cannabis at the federal level. In this presentation, we will examine both the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct and a selection of state rules and opinions as we work through the ethical implications for lawyers who don’t stay off the grass.
