Todd is joined by Steve Elleman of Thompson Hine, Steve Lendaris of Baker Botts and April Besl of Dinsmore & Shohl.

Intellectual property is an asset. Founders and startups need to understand the value of their intellectual property. What is a copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret? How do these protect the startup and its’ asset? How can a startup monetize these intangible assets? This webinar focuses on intellectual property laws in the U.S. and how founders and their counsel can navigate them to make sure that the company owns (or has the right to use) the IP it thinks it owns (or has the right to use) and how to protect itself from third party claims to the contrary and from those who would infringe on the startup’s rights.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas, yet is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
