Small Business Series: Intellectual Property for Restaurants
June 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
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
