July Meeting Guest Speaker: Jeff Ouimet, Ouimet Law Offices
Topic: "Intellectual Property: Protecting Your Investment and Promoting Your Brand"
About the Presentation:
Intellectual property is more than just patents, trademarks and copyright. It's all about protecting and maximizing the value of your business and your brand. And it's not just for big players - it's for everybody. Join us as we take a look at what intellectual property assets are, how to identify them and how to protect them. We will then look at how you can use your intellectual property assets to increase your return on investment and promote your brand. Whether you own a patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or know-how, you will learn how the law protects it and how to get maximum value from it.
- Learn to identify intellectual property assets, including those you don't know you own
- Learn how the law protects you and your rights
- Discover the role of intellectual property in brand protection, development and promotion
