intellectual property small business May 21, 2020

Are you taking your products & services online for the first time? Starting a new business? Don’t miss the chance to learn how to protect your business from the start.

Duncan Byers has been a practicing attorney for just shy of two decades, advising companies and individuals on a broad range of intellectual property issues. He’s got answers to your questions about the basics, which are especially important to ask in this time when a lot of you are thinking about, or have already started, your own business.

Tune in to learn:

• WHAT? Most business owners have no idea how important it is to start branding and brand protection at the beginning (because they are so focused on building a business and making money). How disheartening to lose it all months or even years down the road because of copyright or other infringement!
• HOW? It’s all about planning and protection: understand what you have in terms of protectable IP, how to plan your marketplace presence, and how to avoid stepping on the rights of someone else.
• STEPS YOU CAN TAKE: Duncan will share the steps you can take to help you and your product stand out in the marketplace, protect what you are creating, and avoid a Fortune 500 company objecting to your branding (because that’s a lawsuit you do NOT want to face).
Full disclosure: Duncan is Cat’s brother. Who do you think is older and wiser?
