Hoge Fenton Trademark Attorney Dana Brody-Brown to Present at the Monterey County Women Lawyer’s Association IP Law Seminar for Non-IP Lawyers

By Hoge Fenton | 03.4.2019 | Speaking Engagements & Firm Events

Stop overlooking critical deal-making intellectual property law with this presentation by Dana Brody-Brown of Hoge Fenton on the topic of IP law for non-IP Lawyers. How often do we use intellectual property language without understanding how it impacts us, especially given the uncertainties of this specialized area? Every employment contract, settlement agreement, & basic business/non-profit/government agency use this language without a strong understanding of its long-lasting impact. In this seminar, we will discuss the basic principle of copyright and trademark law – and even sprinkle in critical patent law concepts: the basics of the right to be attributed, the value of nonsensical representations, and the idea of being first. Specific techniques to protect your client – whether a business owner, an employer, or a party to a settlement – will be provided.
