Are you planning to start a new business venture? Do you have a really great name for a product or service? Are you an artist who wants to use existing logos in your creative artwork?
Join CLA and attorney Justin Sterling for a workshop on trademarks -- what they are, what they mean, and ways they can help you create a strong brand identity. The workshop will provide a background on basic trademark law, including an introduction to trademark selection and registration, an overview of the spectrum of distinctiveness, and methods to enforce trademark rights. It will also cover the use of trademarks in business and art, protection for trade dress, and trademark dilution claims for famous marks.
