Participants will be provided with an overview of all forms of intellectual property, including patents, trade-marks, designs, copyright and domain names, with an emphasis on trade-marks and trade-names. There will be a review of what steps should be taken in choosing a trade-mark and trade-name, how to establish and maintain rights in a trade-mark and trade-name, the trade-mark process and some issues to watch for involving third party use. This will be an interactive presentation with a lot of opportunity for questions and answers.
