  • Effective use of United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) website resources

  • What may happen if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights in a mark and issues a “cease-and-desist” letter

  • What the USPTO does in the federal registration process and how to avoid scams perpetrated by companies which request fees for services not required by the USPTO


The event will run from 6:30-8:30pm in the Skyline Room on the 4th Floor of Parkway Central Library.
