Join us for a fireside chat with Intellectual Property attorneys, Pam Fulmer and Dee Ware, where we will talk about the basic types of intellectual property protected under U.S. law. From patents and trademarks to copyrights and trade secrets, we'll run the gambit on what every entrepreneur should know about valuable property rights! We will also dive a little deeper into best practices for identifying and protecting trade secrets from theft by competitors and former employees.
