In this workshop you will learn: 
  • How trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names and business name registrations differ
  • Why it is important for any new business to select a trademark that will be both federally registrable and legally protectable 
  • Critical factors when choosing a mark
  • The importance of doing a complete search and whether or not an attorney should be used
  • What may happen if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights in a mark and issues a “cease-and-desist” letter
  • Information on what the USPTO does in the federal registration process and how to avoid “scams” perpetrated by companies that request fees for services not required by the USPTO
