This session will primarily focus on alleviating misconceptions regarding the use of trademarks, copyrights and intellectual property, including a discussion of the factors for determining what constitutes fair use and what crosses the line to infringement. In addition, general tips for developing, searching, procuring, protecting and policing intellectual property will be discussed. Questions will be encouraged.

When & Where
The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) is a community of marketing and business development professionals working to secure profitable business relationships for their A/E/C companies. Through networking, business intelligence, and research, SMPS members gain a competitive advantage in positioning their firms successfully in the marketplace. SMPS offers members professional development, leadership opportunities, and marketing resources to advance their careers.
In September of 2001, a small group of A/E/C marketers met and quickly decided that an SMPS chapter in Oklahoma was desperately needed to help firms within the state join together to form stronger partnerships and also to offer training opportunities for its members. Within three months officers were elected, Articles of Incorporation were filed, and on December 11, 2001, Oklahoma was declared the 50th SMPS chapter in the nation.
