    PROTECTING YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY WEBINAR

    with Michael Malyar, Esq

    Webinar topics will include:

    • An overview of Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets
    • The protection and monetization aspects of each
    • The major differences between them
    • The subcategories of each
    • Consideration in the development of a trademark
    • Research on existing trademarks
    • Considerations in preparing a patent application
    • Research on existing patents
