Stopfakes.gov Intellectual Property Rights Seminar, November 5

 

 

The Saratoga Partnership, in collaboration with the US Department of Commerce, Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, and Heslin Rothenberg Farley & Mesiti P.C. Intellectual Property Law, will be hosting the   STOPfakes.gov Roadshow on Tuesday, November 5 from 8:00am – 4:30 pm at the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, 5 Computer Drive South, Colonie. StopFakes.gov Roadshow delivers critically important information about intellectual property to the audience that needs it most – start-ups, entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses, independent creators, and inventors.

The information is presented by experts from multiple government agencies that deal with intellectual property issues. Participants will learn: how to protect their patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets in the United States; the mechanisms for obtaining IP protection in overseas markets and strategies for determining where they should seek protection; how to record their mark with Customs, with on-site help, in order to exclude counterfeit goods from entering the United States; how to combat counterfeits on international e-commerce sites; and about government resources available to help U.S. businesses with intellectual property issues. In short, participants will learn information vital to competing in an increasingly global environment.
