Intellectual property is not just the domain of a hired lawyer, but rather it is an integral part of the strategy behind launching any new business venture. Patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets — all of these aspects of IP are embedded into the overall brand value of a business and/or product. Sign up for our 8-week newsletter course to challenge what you think you know about IP.
So, how about it then? Looking for a little extra brain food? You’ll learn 8 Lessons in IP Strategy taken straight from the real world stories of entrepreneurs and companies. Sign up to receive the special newsletter series over the course of 8 weeks.
How it works
You will receive a total of 8 weekly newsletters with the goal of improving your knowledge of IP and how it functions in the real world. Each written piece has received expert editorial guidance from professionals like Orozco with years of experience in the field and a wealth of knowledge to share.
The knowledge you gain from each weekly lesson will ensure that you cover all four verticals of IP including patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets:
Week 1: Patents and Public Disclosure
Week 2: Online Counterfeiting and Infringement
Week 3: Trademark Rights and Employment Agreements
Week 4: Copyright Infringement
Week 5: Early Federal Trademark Registration
Week 6: Licensing Using a Provisional Patent Application
Week 7: Trade Secret Theft
Week 8: A Billion Dollar IP Success Story
The weekly lessons will contain additional resources, terms to learn, critical thinking questions and fictional scenarios to challenge you even further if you wish. They are thought provoking but accessible exercises presented as easy-to-read motivational stories that anyone from advanced high school level and onward can take and learn from.
Please make note: None of this and any of the forthcoming content shall be construed as legal advice, or as creating an attorney/client relationship. If you need professional counsel, please seek an attorney.
