Copyrights and Trademarks are intimidating to a lot of people. Why? Because it's unfamiliar territory and it's 'Legal Stuff'. Many graphic designers, musicians, entrepreneurs, and creatives have many questions about the use of trademarks and copyrights in their business. WIth my passion for these topics, I can help ease the burden for Creatives by giving them the basic tools they need to understand this legal realm. Naming your business and protecting a brand is like caring for a new baby. Its essential to create the right conditions and the proper building blocks on which to continue to build your empire. Learning a new subject can be time consuming, but with the right support it can relieve some of the 'dirty' work. I love to review and teach people about naming their business, how to choose a business name, how to properly care for the name, how and when to register a trademark, the difference between trademark symols, and what to do when someone else is using your name! People often ask when is the right time to register my trademark or can i use a copyright symbol without having a registration certificate? I assist in answering these questions and creating a more secure business mentality by empowering people with this crash course. Trademarks and Copyrights are fun and entertaining topics with me.
