Karol Kepchar Interviewed on Internet IP by Metropolitan Corporate Counsel
Karol Kepchar, a partner in Akin Gump’s intellectual property practice, was interviewed by Metropolitan Corporate Counsel for the article “The Evolving World Of IP And The Internet,” which discusses her practice and the application of IP law to the rapidly evolving Internet.
Kepchar, a trademark and copyright litigator and IP strategist, outlined her career and the application of IP legal principles to the Internet and mobile device spaces, which, she noted, “has really required us to do some new thinking,” noting how the Internet has turned the jurisdictional concept of trademark protection “on its head.”
The interview also covers strategies to define and defend IP protection rights, social media sites and IP protection, and remedies for companies operating on the Internet, among other topics.
