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

Due to the rapidly evolving public health situation surrounding COVID-19, Small Business BC has reached the difficult decision to modify how we deliver our services in the coming weeks.

[2020-04-23] UPDATE FOR THIS SESSION: Please note this session will be delivered using a previous recording.

As an organization, our number one priority will always be the health and safety of our clients, staff and service providers. We also want to ensure we maintain the high service standards our clients expect. As such, we will be delivering all our services online, or over the phone, until further notice. See here for more information on our service changes. Please use our COVID-19 small business resources – including this practical checklist for business continuity.
