Intellectual Property 101: Trademarks, Copyright, and Patents
Intellectual property, or IP, consists of all the pieces of your business that you or your employees have created that support your business. IP is the original concepts, ideas, products, inventions, etc. developed by your business that become valuable assets. Since IP has value, and it belongs to you, you’ll want to protect it!
In this workshop we will cover topics such as:
- Why is IP important?
- 4 types of IP
- Trade Secrets
- Durango US Patent and Trademark Office resources
