Many nonprofit executives and counsel do not fully appreciate the often counter-intuitive intricacies and nuances of intellectual property law, as well as the pitfalls that abound for failing to proactively address them. On the trademark side, from clearing marks, to registering them, to managing, licensing and enforcing them -- both domestically and internationally -- there is an abundance of knowledge and know-how to digest. New technologies also bring to new challenges to protecting rights in and avoiding liability from misusing copyrightable works or from inadvertently disclosing or misappropriating trade secrets. Today’s digital world requires proactive measures to protect, enforce, and manage valuable content. 

Join the seasoned intellectual property attorneys from the Venable law firm as they walk you through the essentials in these areas, highlight common traps and pitfalls, and, most importantly for you, give you the thoughtful, practical, real-life guidance and tips that you need to know to protect your nonprofit in the U.S. and overseas, and optimize and capitalize on your intellectual property portfolio.
