Cambridge Satchel Company aumenta i suoi sforzi per proteggere il marchio

Cambridge Satchel Company ha ingaggiato MarkMonitor®, leader nella protezione dei marchi online, per affrontare gli innumerevoli rischi legati alla contraffazione dei prodotti, alle violazioni del copyright e al cybersquatting che hanno afflitto il marchio sin dal suo successo immediato come una delle ultime ossessioni della moda mondiale.

Cambridge Satchel Company è cresciuta da un investimento iniziale di 600 Sterline nel 2008 a oltre 8 milioni di fatturato nel 2012. L'azienda è stata creata da Julie Deane, una mamma inglese con due figli, che, per poter pagare le tasse scolastiche e mandare sua figlia in una nuova scuola dopo che aveva subìto un episodio di prepotenza, si è buttata in questa avventura. La storia relativa alla crescita del marchio è presentata nell'ultima serie di annunci di Google Chrome "The Web is What You Make of It" (Il web è ciò che ne fai).

"La portata incredibile del web e le economie di scala hanno rivoluzionato il modo in cui i marchi si propongono ai clienti e conducono il proprio business. Ma proprio le qualità che rendono il web così attraente per la crescita delle aziende, allettano i contraffattori. Diventa facile e remunerativo per i ladri di marchi rubare nomi a brand famosi come Cambridge Satchel Company.", ha affermato Frederick Felman, Direttore marketing di MarkMonitor. "Aziende in rapida crescita e con una forte progettualità come Cambridge Satchel sono coscienti che la strategia di protezione del loro marchio merita il massimo livello di attenzione, al fine di poter proteggere i propri clienti e le proprie entrate".

Julie Deane ha attuato questi ulteriori sforzi per proteggere il marchio e salvaguardare il consumatore. "È una vera e propria vergogna che le contraffazioni e tutti questi siti fraudolenti stiano derubando i consumatori. Abbiamo ricevuto lettere ed e-mail da clienti che richiedevano la restituzione di cartelle di bassa qualità o che volevano sapere come mai le loro ordinazioni non erano state evase. Controllando il numero degli ordini abbiamo scoperto che non erano ordinazioni effettuate sul sito ufficiale di Cambridge Satchel Company, ma da uno dei siti fraudolenti. Stiamo lavorando a stretto contatto con i nostri avvocati per far eliminare questi siti, ma continuano a nascerne di nuovi, che utilizzano nomi nuovi e attuano nuove strategie", ha affermato Deane. "Usando impropriamente le nostre foto e altri materiali protetti da copyright, questi siti sembrano offrire ai clientidei prodotti autentici. Avevamo bisogno di un nuovo approccio che fosse basato su una profonda comprensione del web e dei canali digitali e per questo motivo ci siamo rivolti a MarkMonitor.

"Questi siti sfruttano il nostro nome, il nostro marchio e le nostre promozioni e non stanno solo rubando vendite a noi, ma ci costringono anche a ulteriori investimenti per aumentare i programmi di customer service e per le spese legali. Questi siti danneggiano il consumatore e ci distraggono dal nostro lavoro per la creazione di programmi di marketing positivi a favore dei nostri clienti".

Da quando MarkMonitor ha iniziato a lavorare con Cambridge Satchel, in pochi mesi abbiamo scoperto ed eseguito azioni legali contro oltre 1.000 elenchi di prodotti contraffatti su siti di vendita, alcuni dei quali riferivano la disponibilità di migliaia di prodotti. Il programma di protezione del marchio ha scoperto 29 siti di e-commerce che vendevano prodotti contraffatti e 76 siti di cybersquatting che usavano il marchio Cambridge Satchels nel nome del dominio.

Cambridge Satchel Company lavora scrupolosamente per proteggere il proprio business e lo scorso anno ha vinto una azione legale per violazione dei diritti di proprietà intellettuale contro il produttore che ora usa il nome Zatchels, (già Leicester Remedials and Sewing). Il contenzioso è stato risolto obbligando Zatchels a pagare una somma a Cambridge Satchel Company.

"La migliore protezione del marchio", ha affermato Julie Deane, "è costituita da un brand forte e in piena salute che fornisce un prodotto e un'esperienza eccezionali per il consumatore. Siamo continuamente concentrati sull'innovazione con nuovi stili e design per deliziare i nostri clienti e collaborare a livello mondiale con partner eccezionali. Quest'anno abbiamo stretto accordi di collaborazione per il design con aziende importanti come Comme des Garcons, Basso and Brooke, Christopher Shannon e Chris Benz; inoltre condividiamo programmi con Pantone, Disney, Google e altri progetti sono in cantiere. Siamo orgogliosi di ciò che abbiamo costruito; continueremo a investire nello sviluppo e nella protezione del marchio Cambridge Satchel Company, del suo design e dei marchi commerciali".

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so.

The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
