webinarOn Thursday, April 20, at 12:00 p.m. Central, Seyfarth attorneys Patrick T. Muffo and Kevin J. Mahoney will present Simple Measures for Protecting Intellectual Property and Trade Secrets.

Every day, companies unknowingly give up intellectual property and trade secrets which they could have otherwise protected with simple processes. Poor R&D policies may not capture patent rights on a company invention. A faulty or simply outdated employment agreement may not protect a customer list used by an employee who leaves for a competitor. These pitfalls are easily avoidable by implementing measures on the front end and educating employees on the basics of intangible property and how to protect it.

In this webinar, Seyfarth IP and trade secret attorneys will provide a basic overview of what types of intellectual property and trade secrets are protectable, how to protect them, and helpful tips to ensure that a company is doing everything they can to avoid common issues associated with intangible property.

The topics covered include:

  • A discussion of what types of intangible property are protectable
  • The process for protecting intangible property
  • What is a “trade secret” and how do you protect one?
  • What steps can engineers, business people, and marketing teams take to ensure their intangible assets are protected on the front end?
