Legal Stuff Explained #4: Intellectual Property Law for Small Businesses and Startups

image

When: Thursday, April 12nd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Where: NYU-Poly Incubator, 20 Jay Str. #313, 11201 Brooklyn

Who: Sarah Feingold


This course starts with the basics of copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents and contracts. It will then examine what aspects of a business can and cannot be protected, how to police these assets, how to use other people’s intellectual property and how to decipher your next move when that dreaded lawyer letter arrives.


Teacher: Sarah Feingold

sarah Sarah was born an artist, and she decided that the best way to protect creative folks like herself was to attend law school. She’s currently the general counsel of Etsy, where she focuses on intellectual property, business and e-commerce law. While not practicing, she writes and speaks about legal issues and hammers silver in her tiny Brooklyn apartment kitchen.
