Protecting Your Intellectual Property with Patents and Trademark
October 13, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Jeffrey Siew and Jason Lott, the US Patent and Trademark Office’s Attorney Advisors for Trademark Educational Outreach, work to educate small business owners on trademark fundamentals. Intellectual property protects more than just a business idea: it protects the future of the business. Most small business owners, however, haven’t taken the steps necessary to protect their business’ key assets.
Siew and Lott’s October 13 workshop provides a basic outline of how patents and trademarks work, how to properly file the necessary paperwork, and how to avoid legal troubles before they happen. Siew will also cover proper search techniques, whether an attorney is necessary, and what may happen if a trademark is challenged.
With the right tools and the correct information, small business owners can grow their business, while protecting themselves and their investment. The Long Beach SBDC is here to help them do both.
