Terrence J. McAllister, our Trademark Partner was presenting a seminar entitled Oh No, we forgot to name the Product!  When is the right time to think about branding and trademark issues for your new business?  The seminar will be presented at the Inventors Association of Connecticut (IACT) meeting on August 25, 2011 at Fairfield University.  The topics to be covered include:

  • I have registered a domain name, can I use it for my business?
  • Why are trademarks and copyrights important/valuable for your business?
  • What types of legal protection are available in the US and overseas?
  • What names, logos, designs can be protected?
