Presenter Richard A. Catalina, Jr., Esq. will discuss the many forms of intellectual property generated by a business—such as trademarks, trade secrets, copyright material, patentable inventions, and more—and how to properly protect and defend that property. Depending on the form of intellectual property, specific actions must be taken to preserve the property and prevent its loss to third parties or the public domain. All business owners should understand these rights and how to protect what may be the company’s most valuable assets.
Included in the discussion will be the procedures to register the property with the applicable government agencies, the rights granted by such registrations, how to safeguard from employee theft, dealing with third party consultants, what to do in the event of infringement, misappropriation or unlawful disclosure and more.
