CORRAL YOUR CA$H COW: Protect, Manage, and Grow Your Intellectual Property

Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been at “the business” for years, you know success doesn’t come easy. You’ve worked hard to create your business and to carve a niche for yourself. You share your ideas, programs, and processes with clients and audiences around the world  to help them achieve their goals. Now it’s time to ask yourself IF, WHAT, and HOW you should be protecting the Intellectual Property you’ve worked so hard to create! In our April 18 professional workshop, Attorney and fellow NSA member Russ Riddle will answer these questions and more!

As a business owner and professional speaker, your most valuable asset aside from people is your intellectual property. This session saddles you up to better protect, manage and fatten that cash cow. 

Valuable Takeaways:

  • Distinguish between the intellectual property types
  • Ensure ownership from the outset (employees vs. contractors)
  • Ace copyrights and avoid copy-wrongs
  • Master the trademark DOs and DON?Ts
  • Preserve, Protect & Defend — Police your I.P.
  • Stop rustling others’ cash cows
  • Avoid “public domain” land mines
  • Capitalize and comply with licensing opportunities
