Protecting On-line Businesses: What Every Entrepreneur Should Know about Intellectual Property



Tue, Apr 27, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am

  • This event has passed.

The shift to more on-line business will likely remain as we re-open following the pandemic.  As beneficial as it is to conduct business online, it is also challenging to navigate the quickly changing landscape and avoid legal pitfalls.

This presentation will discuss how you can protect your business, avoid the pitfalls, and answer questions such as:

  • How do I work with contractors and use third party content on my website in a way that limits my liability?
  • Can I use the names or logos of other companies on my website?
  • How can website terms of use protect my business?
  • How can I prevent others from copying me?

This presentation will also provide an overview of patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets and how you can use these tools to increase your competitiveness and create value in your business.

Registration is required to attend this webinar. The Zoom link will be emailed to registrants prior the webinar.

Co-sponsored by the North Shore Alliance for Economic Development.
