Staying outside the recycle bin.

It’s been said that marketing is 1% inspiration, 29% perspiration, 70% plagiarism. If Shakespeare were writing today, he’d probably be in trouble for all his borrowed plots and characters. But – trademarks, copyrights, plagiarism, oh my. What can get us into trouble and how can we stay safe while maintaining our creative edge?

And what about the intellectual property that’s a vital asset to any business? Securing rights to your company’s name, logo, images, trade secrets and trademarks is as important as protecting any other valuable business asset. Join us and hear what you need to know before ‘recycling’.

  • Finding out if it belongs to someone else.
  • Giving credit where credit is due, when and how.
  • If it sounds like a duck, is it?
  • When in doubt, what to do?
