Securing a trademark is every business' top priority as it serves both as an asset and an identity. Moreover, registering marks is becoming increasingly necessary to enforce a business' trademark rights on the internet where infringement and counterfeiting is a growing concern. However, many companies struggle with registering their marks since trademark registration requires a comprehensive and an accurate application that demonstrates how the mark is distinctive, unique in its field and serves to identify and distinguish the company's goods/services from that of its competitors and other businesses. Each trademark or service mark application will undergo a rigorous examination by one of several hundred examining attorneys at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and is therefore more than a "rubber stamping." Failure to prepare the necessary requirements for an application can lead to the denial of registration and the loss of all filing fees.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and trademark lawyers assembled by The Knowledge Group as they bring the audience to a road beyond the basics of the preparation and prosecution of trademark application. Speakers will also provide the audience with best practices and risk mitigation strategies for an effective trademark registration.
Key topics include:
· Trademark Selection and Preparation:
· Trademark Registration Rejections
· Ensuring an Effective Trademark Preparation and Prosecution
· Risk Mitigation Strategies and Best Practices
· What Lies Ahead?
