Russ Riddle Corral Your Cash Cow Manual
As a business owner, your most valuable asset aside from your people is your intellectual property (e.g., copyright, trademarks, trade secrets and patents). The goal of this 62-page manual is to saddle you up to better protect, manage and fatten your cash cow, and help you avoid rustling other’s cash cows (i.e., unlawfully using others’ intellectual property).
Some of your takeaways will include:
• Understand the difference between the intellectual property types; • How to ensure your ownership from the outset (employees vs. contractors); • Ace copyrights and avoid copy-wrongs; • Master the trademark DOs and DONʼTs; • How to preserve, protect & defend your I.P.; • Avoidance of “public domain” land mines; • Compliance with licensing opportunities
