Come on a Netwalk with Senior Attorney, Jonathan Parthum and learn why Intellectual Property (IP) protection should not be neglected in a crowded marketplace.
IP is one of the most important tools for growing your business during the formation and development of the business.
Seeking IP protection late in the business lifecycle can lead to the loss of IP rights and devaluation of the brand itself. Accordingly, it is important to have some knowledge of the different types of IP and how they can help your business at various stages to ensure you appropriately protect your brand and innovations while also protecting against encroaching competitors. You will hear value stories similar to the one of Dominique Ansell – created the Cronut®, a cream-filled donut-croissant hybrid with the foresight to register the trademark name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
We will walk approximately 1.5 – 2 miles with multiple breaks. The walking tour will begin outside the Foggy Bottom Metro and will update attendees when we confirmed Georgetown participating restaurants.
Registration is required
