Trademarks, Copyright, Patents and More

How to Protect Your Intellectual Property

Course Description

Do you know if the work you create belongs to you? Or how to prevent others from copying your ideas? Attend our Trademarks, Copyright, Patents and More seminar and hear from an intellectual property lawyer on the various forms of intellectual property protection and how they can safeguard your business.

What Will I Learn?

  • Overview of Types of Intellectual Property - when to consider patent, trademark, copyright, or design protection

  • Why geography and jurisdiction matter

  • Overview of Trademark Protection - what are trademarks and how to protect them, and how to avoid disputes over trademarks

  • Overview of Copyright Protection - what is copyright and how to avoid common pitfalls

At Small Business BC, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. As a result, we continue to deliver all our services online, or over the phone until further notice. View our resources for getting Back to Business, or connect directly with a business advisor through our COVID-19 Support Service.

Please note: all webinar participants will also receive access to a recording for seven days after the live session.
