Trademarks & Your Business

Establishing a strong brand is important to business success and a trademark can become one of your company’s most important and valuable assets. From the onset of the creation of a business name, it is important from the trademark perspective to determine whether that name is viable. The name may be already in use or may be too descriptive; it may also be weak and, therefore, difficult to protect. This class will help a business understand the legal aspects of branding, the risks of not undertaking a proper trademark clearance and the benefits it will derive from trademark registration.

Classes typically focus on:

  • What can be trademarked
  • How to determine if your trademark is available for use
  • The trademark process
  • How to properly use your trademark
  • How to police your trademark
