    When and How to Protect Your Great Ideasand Brands

    Boca Raton, FL – November 4, 2016

    Frank Rodriguez, Esq., will address a Junior League audience about this contemporary
    marketing topic that can be applied to any nonprofit business or personal brand.

    When you have a great idea or brand name for your new nonprofit program or for a big
    fundraiser, should you trademark it, copyright it or just not worry about it?

    What can you, or should you, do if someone copies your event name?

    When should you protect yourself at the state vs. national level?

    This seminar will cover the basics on intellectual property protections, and explore the
    differences between service marks, brand names, fictitious names and much more. Bring your
    questions!
