Jan. 11 seminar will examine legal issues

December 22, 2010
Don't miss a free presentation Jan. 11 at the CATA on two topics by attorneys from Barnes & Thornburg LLP, a CATA allied member. The topics are "Protection from theft of customer lists, leads, business information" and "Indemnification in warranty litigation."

Dealers can learn practical steps to protect their business's customer lists, Internet leads and other valuable information while facing a highly mobile employee workforce, and how to create the best chance to recover such information after it has been stolen.

Barnes & Thornburg also will review practical tips for preserving indemnification and defeating claims in breach of warranty cases, such as drawing the line between responsibility for defective parts and "bad" repairs; and helpful disclaimers in purchase order forms of the implied warranty of merchantability and consequential damanges.
