If your small business is not in the life sciences or high technology industry, then you may think that your company has no intellectual property that you should be concerned about.  However, the reality is that most small businesses today have intellectual property, regardless of the industry that they are in.

This program was created to educate small businesses on what types of intellectual property they may have in their business and some of the issues that they need to be aware of.  Program highlights include explaining what constitutes a copyrightable work, common copyright issues that arise for small businesses, how to ensure that you own the rights in design materials that you have developed, and  how to protect your business ideas and plans.  The program is primarily intended for business owners who have a “low tech” business and are not regularly dealing with intellectual property issues in their company,  so no prior knowledge of intellectual property is assumed.

This webinar is based on a program, which was first presented to several clients in 2008 and 2009 in order to educate them on the issues involving nondisclosure agreements.

The program is designed to educate businesses on the important aspects of a nondisclosure agreement and to inform them about some of the issues that they need to watch out for in these types of agreements.
