Do you know if your business needs a copyright or trademark? Join us on this webinar to understand how to effectively utilize trademarks and copyrights as important tools in protecting your intellectual property (IP). Having strong IP protections in place is important for not only large corporations, but also for small businesses and start-up companies as well. Understanding how to utilize and protect your IP provides leveraging power in business transactions and relationships. Particularly if you, or your company, is in the business of creating unique goods or services placed in the stream of commerce, this webinar will help in ensuring that listeners have the tools needed to understand trademarks and copyrights.

Trademark and copyright protections provide certain exclusive rights to the owner of the trademark or copyright. While trademarks and copyrights can be registered for additional protections, some trademark and copyright protections begin automatically after a certain action is taken place. Therefore, it is important for business owners to know when certain trademark or copyright protections may begin. These protections provide the owner with exclusive rights to prevent third parties from enjoying the fruits of the company’s labors, including, for example, preventing third parties from copying an artistic work created by the company, or preventing third parties from utilizing a trademark or logo that may be confusingly similar to your company’s.
