    • Cost / benefit analysis – small claims track vs multi track in IPEC;
    • Remedies available to copyright owner;
    • What a good “cease and desist” letter should contain;
    • How a court would assess damages;

    • Some strategies for defence.

    You will have plenty of time for questions and conversations following the talk.
