The release was led by Laura Urquizu, CEO of Red Points, and counted with the presence of Dan Harris, founder of the firm Harris Bricken, based in Los Angeles. Mr. Harris is also the founder of The China Law Blog, mentioned by the ABA Journal in its perennial favorite list of the top 100 legal blogs on the internet — the Blawg 100 Hall of Fame.
Red Points Academy's release was also attended by Kevin Nugent, VP of Customer Success at IPfolio — the leading intellectual property management software.
According to Laura Urquizu, CEO at Red Points, Red Points Academy becomes necessary “in a world where anyone can sell online, and therefore anyone can be affected by online brand abuse as well.”
“It's not a problem exclusive to big brands anymore. Businesses on the internet are becoming more and more niche-oriented, giving an opportunity for smaller companies to prospect and grow in this environment. However, counterfeiters keep an eye on those success stories too. We require innovation, but also well-trained professionals who will cover the needs of the thousands of brands, which are conquering the online space without the correct professional orientation regarding online brand protection. Red Points Academy brings innovation and collaboration to this sector, which are important traits embedded in our DNA”, states Laura Urquizu.
