Intellectual Property Essentials for Startups

Are you an entrepreneur with a business name or brand? How about a secret sauce or other trade secrets like price lists, customer lists, or suppliers? If so, it’s important for you to protect these assets proactively, rather than wish you had when they’re lost or stolen. Similarly, you don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you’re infringing one someone else’s intellectual property rights and waking up to a cease and desist letter! The goal of this month’s OSU Advantage Accelerator Speaker Series is help you avoid common IP pitfalls by reviewing different types of intellectual property assets and how they can be protected, as well as identifying ways you may be unknowingly infringing upon others’ property rights.

Join the OSU Advantage Accelerator on Thursday, December 16th from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. for a conversation with Michel Marie Rose, trademark and intellectual property lawyer at Bellwether Legal. You'll get to hear us ask Michel some important legal questions about intellectual property, and you'll also have a chance to ask her your own questions during our audience Q&A.
