Nonprofits invest a lot of sweat equity into building their ‘brand’ (which can include creating a memorable name, logo and tagline) and developing curriculum and other materials. As a result, nonprofits should consider taking steps to protect their brand and materials and prevent others from using them.

During this workshop, our speaker will address the following:

  • What are federal and state trademarks and when are they useful?
  • What are copyrights and when is filing an application necessary?
  • How do you register trademarks and copyrights and how much does it cost?
  • What steps can you take to protect your intellectual property without cost?

When: Tuesday, September 8, 2011.
Time: 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
Where: Foundation Center
Presenter: Rick McMurtry, Assistant General Counsel, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.
