About the Presenters:
Richard P. Jacobson
Jacobson Law Group, PLLC
Trademark, Copyright, Internet and Advertising Law
Rich Jacobson has practiced law exclusively in the IP space for more than 20 years. He runs his own firm, Jacobson Law Group, and advises retail, media and hospitality companies about trademark, copyright and advertising matters. Rich helps clients navigate the minefield of regulations and class action threats inherent to cosmetics, OTC drugs and consumer products. Rich also oversees litigation involving the wide range of IP and related issues that are relevant to e-commerce and retail brands, while at the same time tirelessly counseling clients on how to avoid litigation.
In 2015, Rich noticed an emerging litigation trend. While ADA claims have long been brought against retail stores that deprived physical access to disabled persons, a few years ago plaintiffs’ attorneys began filing ADA claims charging websites, particularly those involved in e-commerce, with depriving access to visually impaired persons. After tracking these cases for several months and alerting his clients about potential challenges, he soon began defending these claims and has negotiated several settlements involving website accessibility. As the program will address in more detail, the law is constantly changing in what are still uncharted waters. But the requirement of accessibility is inevitable, and it is critical to understand what access means and how it can be implemented.
