Open Workshop, April 7, 2016 - "Trademark and Brand Protection"

Join the Etsy NY Team to learn about Trademark and Brand Protection at our first open workshop of the year!

Trademark and Brand Protection

In today’s hyper-competitive business world, establishing a strong brand and creative presence is important to any business success. Otherwise known as "intellectual property," brands, names, logos, artwork and designs can become the most important and valuable asset of a business. Yet many business owners either fail to undertake this consideration or are unsure how to properly protect their IP.
This workshop will help you understand the legal aspects of branding, the risks in not undertaking proper IP clearances, the steps to prepare for licensing of IP and the benefits derived from registration of IP. This is a great way for entrepreneurs and small business owners to learn the basics about intellectual property and the reasons they need to invest their time and effort into brand protection.
