Trademark 101: How To Stop Copycats and Protect Your Business From Your Competitors

Binh Rey - Principal Consultant, Seriously Trademarks

Binh Rey, Principal Seriously TrademarksSmall business owners often focus on developing products and services and how they can differentiate themselves from their competitors in the market place. But all of this time, money and effort could be completely wasted if as part of the process they don't protect their business ideas, designs and concepts legally.

There is nothing more frustrating or heartbreaking than finding your website has been copied, your tag line has been borrowed, someone is using a logo just like yours or your ideas have been stolen.

Equally, how would you feel if you woke up one morning only to get a 'Cease and Desist' letter forcing you to stop using your brand that you have invested in?

Over lunch you'll learn the ins and outs of protecting your business from Trademark Specialist, Binh Rey. She will be discussing the basic concepts of what a trademark is, the processes involved in trademarking as well as looking at real life case studies involved in branding strategy. 

Don't leave yourself and your business open to theft and copycats - come along to lunch, network with other business women on the same page as you and discover how and why trademarking adds value to your business and how you can use it to protect your business from competitors.
