March 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $30
Join us to discuss the importance of proactively securing trademarks, copyrights, and patents for your business and get all your questions answered!
Many companies, especially new ones, find themselves reacting only after discovering that another business was first to use their trademark, or after finding out that the photographer they hired actually owns the photos’ copyright. Mr. Kuehn discusses how to get on top of protecting a modern day business’s most important assets – intellectual property.
We will cover key considerations including:
• What trademarks, copyrights, and patents protect
• Trademarks versus copyrights versus patents
• Trademark, copyright, and patent clearance, registration and enforcement
• Copyright ownership and works made for hire
• DMCA take down notices
