Event Details

Protect Your Intellectual Property When Going Global

The strength and vitality of the U.S. economy depend directly on effective ways to protect new ideas and investments in innovation and creativity. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the federal agency for granting U.S. patents and registering trademarks, enhances IP protection for U.S. companies worldwide by strengthening IP provisions in international agreements. Learn about the latest tools to protect your IP in both the U.S. and around the world, so you can expand your sales and increase revenue. 

 

Learn 

  • Overview of intellectual property types: patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets
  • Why innovators and entrepreneurs should consider protecting their IP
  • Understanding the risks of early disclosure
  • How intellectual property and manufacturing overlap
  • Types of resources and assistance available through the USPTO
