ABCs of Trademarks for Small Business Owners

The Frontier | 800 Park Offices Drive | RTP, NC 27709 Sep 22 12:00 pm - Sep 22 2:00 pm

Is your company name important to you? Did you spend time and money developing a logo or a slogan? Small business owners that answer yes should consider registering for a trademark as a way to protect the business brand. North Carolina’s trademarks registry is administered by the N.C. Secretary of State’s Office, while federal trademarks are overseen by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Come and learn the various aspects of trademarks – from choosing between a federal or a state trademark or both to filing for one. Attendees can expect to get an overview of the costs, benefits and pitfalls of trademarks.
