Protecting Your Intellectual Property – And Your Ideas @ Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP
May 5 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

You’ve got a killer plan for a new product or service. How do you make sure someone else doesn’t snatch it and build a company, brand, or even an entirely new market from your idea? Where are you exposed? How do you protect your intellectual property and how do you enforce your protection? What qualifies as a trade secret? What can be protected under an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) – and what can’t? If you’re wondering about these questions, you’re far from alone.

In this workshop, we will cover the essential definitions every entrepreneur needs to know, including intellectual property, patents, copyrights, and other legal terms. You’ll also have the chance to learn from our panel of lawyers and business owners. They’ll share their real-world startup IP experience
