On October 26, 2021, Crowell & Moring attorneys Preetha Chakrabarti, Josh Pond, and Howard Michael will be presenting a webinar with special guest, Christina Mitropoulos from the American Apparel & Footwear Association.

Combine the COVID-19 pandemic with the already exponential rise in e-commerce, and what do you get? Innovation? Sure. Imitation? Absolutely. With it harder than ever to touch and experience products before purchase during the pandemic, 2021 is poised to be the “Year of the Knockoff.”

Following on Crowell & Moring’s 2021: Year of the Knockoff webinar earlier this year, join us for a panel discussion with members of the fashion industry to discuss specific trends in counterfeit products, concerns all members of the industry may be facing, and strategies for countering them at the U.S. International Trade Commission and beyond.
