Understanding the Value of a Business’s Intellectual Property

What do an eye-catching logo, a non-fiction book written by an influential person, and a newly developed search engine all have in common? These are all examples of unique trademarks, copyrights, and patents. Registering each one with the federal government allows the owner to protect their intellectual property.

Join us at Deluxe Exchange 2021 on March, 2, 2021! Our leader Deborah Sweeney will be presenting a panel on “Getting Intellectual: Understanding the Value of a Business’s Intellectual Property.”

What’s the Panel About?

Getting Intellectual: Understanding the Value of a Business’s Intellectual Property” takes a closer look at what makes IP one of the most valuable assets for a small business. Often, this is an asset that is more valuable than your personal belongings.

Is it possible to protect this IP while simultaneously supporting growth and reducing risk? The answer is yes.

This panel will help walk business owners through the process of defining their intellectual property. It will also cover the various types of IP protection available, including trademarks, copyrights, patents, and trade secrets.

What Else Will the Panel Cover?

Our panel will go beyond defining intellectual property and the different types of IP. Small business owners will be joining us as speakers. They will share lessons learned from small business owners in protecting their IP assets. Were they successful or not — and why?

Further, this presentation will take into account the COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 and Intellectual Property

The effect of the pandemic has changed the way businesses think about intellectual property. Many companies moved their businesses to become remote. As a result, they needed to protect various aspects of IP for their businesses. These include everything from domains to trademarks to logos.

New business models were also developed during the pandemic. Many individuals turned their side hustles into small businesses. Social media influencers, including TikTok stars, quickly discovered that IP is a key factor for protecting their work. For example, think of the role copyrights play for performing arts and visual arts. Unique artwork needs a copyright. The lyrics and musical composition of a new song needs a copyright. As these arts are shared online through broad social media platforms and communities, they must receive a copyright to protect from plagiarism.

Who Will Host the Panel?

Deborah will be joined by co-host and expert legal counel Mishawn Nolan. Nolan is the Founding Partner at Nolan Heimann LLP.

In addition, the aforementioned business owners will join us to discuss how they protected their IP assets.
