Chatterbox: Blog Central

I just finished attending my third Licensing Expo at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas. I WROTE THIS BLOG in 2009. At this year’s event, I saw more than ever that whatever was old is new - or reimagined - again. So … I thought I would rerun these thoughts. Only thing maybe changed is popularity of Jonas Brothers? What licensed characters do you remember from childhood?

Got me thinking of the licensed characters of my childhood, and those that came and went during the “licensing years” of my three children over 20 years ago.

A significant court decision last week went against cybersquatters. Judge Batts of the Southern District of New York federal court awarded Tory Burch LLC $164 million. Judge Batts also ordered that 232 domain names used to sell counterfeit goods be disabled, turned over to Tory Burch, and any offending cites created in the future by any of the defendants can also be disabled without the need of another lawsuit.

CPSC is in the process of notifying manufactures of the Database and encouraging them to “register” a company representative who will receive information about complaints pertaining to their company’s products. I strongly encourage each of you to nominate and register such an individual so that you will have an opportunity to timely respond to any published complaint.

For your information, a press release from the CPSC announcing the Database is available on their website (www.cpsc.gov)
