Launch Lecture Series - Intellectual Property 101


INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY 101 - Demystifying Patents, Trademarks, Trade Secrets, and Copyrights

Presented by Erin Klug, Patent & Trademark Attorney

What is the difference between patents, trademarks and copyrights? What type of technology is patentable? When can I use the '®' symbol?  What does "patent pending" actually mean?

These questions, and many more, will be answered in this presentation geared toward inventors, entrepreneurs and creators. We will provide a high-altitude review of Intellectual Property law as it relates to:

  • Patents
  • Trademarks
  • Trade Secrets
  • Copyrights

with the aim to provide you with a basic understanding of what IP is, how IP works, and how to apply IP to your business strategy and branding. Ample time for Q&A will follow.
