Your company name, your slogan and the goodwill of your customers are critical to elevating your bottom line. For most businesses, the Internet has helped improve the visibility of a company brand and its products, and can boost sales and revenue. However, increasingly, the internet has created legal challenges for business owners seeking to protect these valuable assets.
The next installment of the “Legally Speaking” program, a free seminar series sponsored by the Burlington County College High Technology Small Business Incubator, the Rutgers-Camden Business Incubator and the Rutgers-Camden Small Business Development Center, will be held on June 8, and concerns the basics of intellectual property for business owners. The workshop first examines how to protect and capitalize on your company’s intellectual property, like brand name and customer goodwill, and discusses useful tips on protecting and enforcing your rights as a business owner.
The second portion of the seminar covers matters of online reputation management, how to deal with online copyright and trademark infringement, defamation and gripe sites, unflattering or untrue postings on social media sites, and much more. The workshop is presented by Jordan A. LaVine and Alexis K. Arena.
