Protect your brand! Free Trademarks Workshop for Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners!
Wednesday, May 4, 2016
6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Have a logo? Slogan? Sound? Learn the crucial points of protecting your business’ valuable intangible assets through basic information about trademarks.
This legal workshop will demystify the trademark process for small businesses and entrepreneurs by focusing on:
~ What trademarks are and what they do
~ Trademarks vs. Copyrights vs. Trade secrets
~ The trademark application process
~ What to do if someone else is using (infringing upon) your trademark. What to do if you receive a nasty “cease and desist” letter from someone that has a similar name.
