Webinar: Intellectual Property Rights: Don’t Underestimate the Power of Intangible Assets


Intellectual property rights can transform intangible assets into valuable and exclusive property rights. Those exclusive property rights can create crucial benefits—they can deter or prevent others from using inventions or brand-names; enhance a company’s reputation as an innovator; create barriers to entry; increase access to competitor innovations; and more. Join us to learn about what those rights are and how intellectual property rights are obtained and used.

Learning Objectives:
• Hear from experienced intellectual property attorneys about the importance of innovation and brand protection.
• Learn about the different types of intellectual property rights.
• Learn about the value of intellectual property rights, including how these property rights enhance brand and competitive value.
• Discuss real-world examples of how companies have cultivated and used their intellectual property as they have grown from start-ups into established, global corporations.

This session is offered as a part of the EPI Educational Webinar Series, which is a FREE monthly web-based continuing education presentation for EPI members and the general public. Register now.
