LAKE FOREST, Ill. – boats.com, Inc. has plans to enhance its ability to protect copyrights and intellectual property for materials placed on its sites, the company said in a press release this morning.
The enhancements are designed to create additional ability to protect the materials placed on the boats.com, Inc. sites, including YachtWorld.com, while maintaining the rights of customers to their materials. Two recent rulings in Florida courts, one in the BUC vs. IYC case and the other in the YachtBroker.com vs. boats.com, Inc. case prompted the action, the company reported.
“Our services set the standard for the industry, and we have achieved this position by working with the industry and being responsive to its needs,” said Paul Rabe, president, CEO and co-founder of boats.com, Inc. “We know that listings are a broker’s bread and butter and there is a substantial effort involved in creating each one. We recognize the value of each listing and intend to ensure that our customers maintain control over how their materials are used.”
boats.com, Inc. said the changes would not affect the services offered to its customers.
“Our customers depend on our services for their businesses,” said Rabe. “Our commitment to our customers is to continually maintain and improve those services giving them the tools they need to succeed.”
