Intellectual property is a valuable asset to any business, organization or entrepreneur. Successful small business owners should understand the market value of a registered trademark and patented invention and the importance of protecting and enforcing its rights.
Participants will receive practical advice, tips and insights from a USPTO managing attorney as well as seasoned attorneys who practice before the USPTO. Business owners will not want to miss this unique opportunity!
