New York, United States
Intellectual Property Law for Startups // BUSINESS 273
Kristen Leibensperger, Partner @ Leibensperger Law
Monday, May 14th from 6:00 - 7:30 pm
No matter what kind of business you've created, start-up or grown-up, your company can be in jeopardy if you don't understand your most important asset: intellectual property (IP). Some companies are built on it while others generate it over time. You could have unique, protectable IP and not even know it! Or, you may know it but haven't taken the proper steps to protect, nurture, and grow it along with your day to day business.
This class will explain a complex area of law that affects all businesses, especially start-ups, in plain and simple terms. This class will outline a strategy to protect your IP - from copyright and trademarks, to trade secrets and licensing, to overall brand, product and service protection. Follow these steps, understand your IP and leave confidant that the fruits of your entrepreneurship and unique ideas will be built on a solid foundation for success.
