This course introduces one of the key areas of intellectual property law—trademarks. Learn what a trademark is (different from other forms of IP, such as patents or copyrights), what makes a strong trademark and how to select the mark. We’ll discuss steps to develop trademarks rights and domestic and international registration and maintenance requirements. We’ll also discuss optimal steps to protect and enforce trademarks. Great for practitioners looking to expand their practice to include trademarks or improve their ability to spot issues and advise clients when they need further expertise.
