This workshop will provide a basic overview of the trademark search and registration process, with a focus on selecting a good name for registration. The presentation will highlight issues in the creative community, such as accidentally choosing similar names within the same or a closely connected industry, or what happens to a trademark when a business (or particularly a band) breaks up. The workshop will end with a timeline and checklist for how to prepare a registration.
