Topic: Trademarks and Domain Names
(An intellectual property primer for the Webmaster (and others))
Featuring: Warren E. Agin, Attorney at Law

A person's ability to use a domain name often depends on the
trademark rights held in that name by other parties.  "Cyber
squatters have found that registering someone else's
trademark doesn't pay.  More importantly, some businesses
have found that their legitimate use of a domain name has
resulted in an unforseen trademark dispute.  This
lecture, reviews basic trademark law and how it interacts with the
Internet and the policies of Network Solutions, Inc.  Methods for
avoiding liability for infringement and protecting your domain name are
reviewed and some of the more interesting disputes regarding trademarks
on the web will be reviewed.

Warren E. Agin is the principal of Law Offices of Warren E. Agin in
Boston, which provides legal services in the areas of licensing and
technology, general corporate and business law, and  insolvency and
reorganization.  In addition to practicing law, Warren is his own

Mr. Agin has lectured on the topic of intellectual property law and the
Internet to the Internet Developer's Users Group (IDUG), the Association
of Microsoft Solution Providers, and the Computer Law Committee of the
