INTA supports events aimed at protecting brand owners and consumers as they navigate the Internet and use the Whois database
NEW YORK, NY – October 29, 2007 – The International Trademark Association (INTA) today announced it’s strong support for the Whois database, which is an important agenda item at the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers’ (ICANN) 30th International Public Meeting in California beginning on October 29th, 2007.
INTA, along with the Intellectual Property Constituency (IPC) and The Commercial and Business Users Constituency are working together to promote the 30th International Public Meeting being held in Los Angeles, California, from October 29th to November 2nd, 2007. The week-long series of events includes topical information sessions and panel discussions, and culminates with a vote on the future of the Whois database.
“The Whois database is exactly the type of consumer and brand owner protection tool that we need in our arsenal against cyber crime,” said INTA Executive Director, Alan Drewsen. “For too long now, fraudulent tactics on the Internet have targeted everyday online users and legitimate brand names and owners; Whois helps shift that balance away from criminals by empowering Internet businesses and users,” affirmed Drewsen.
