Small Business Series: Intellectual Property for Restaurants

June 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

Event Navigation

This event has been cancelled, but we invite you to sign up here for the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office’s similar discussion on July 19. 

Are you a restauranteur? A chef? A food truck operator? Do you want to learn how intellectual property rights can help you protect your business?

Join a trademark attorney from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for an overview of trademarks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets in the food-service industry. You’ll learn what each of these types of intellectual property are and how they might be used to protect what makes your restaurant special.

Because trademark registration is a highly effective way to protect your brand, we’ll also cover:

  • Definitions and types of trademarks
  • Benefits of federal trademark registration
  • Selecting a trademark
  • Filing and registration
  • How to find help


Date: Wednesday, June 16, 2021

Time: 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM PDT

Location: Zoom (Registrants will be sent zoom log-in details about one day prior to the event.)

Registration: Complimentary, but RSVP required
