Event Details

As a part of the Intellectual Property Seminar Series, sponsored by the Georgia Tech's Patent and Trademark Resource Center, Georgia Tech Library, this session is focusing on trademarks. Any inventors, entrepreneurs, students, faculty, researchers and IP professionals who have interests in the topic are welcome to register and join the discussion.

Trademark for Business Program Overview:

This session is led by Mr. Craig Morris, Managing Attorney for Trademark Educational Outreach. He will discuss the following topics:

  • How trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names, and business name registrations all differ.

  • Why it is important for any new business to select a trademark that will be both federally registrable and legally protectable, highlighting factors critical when choosing a mark.

  • The importance of doing a complete search and whether an attorney should be used.

  • What if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights in a mark and issues a "cease-and-desist" letter?

  • Information on applying to seek federal registration and how to avoid "scams" perpetrated by companies that request fees for services not required by the USPTO.

  • What happens after registration?



Schedule:

1:00 p.m. - Registration and networking

1:30 p.m. - Program starts

3:00 p.m. - Program ends
