How do you determine if your product or service name already exists in the marketplace? How do you seek protection for your trade or service mark? Your trademark is important to establishing your "good name" in the marketplace.It is also important not to waste money on packaging your product when there might be a possibility of confusion with another company's mark. Would you like to know what kind of new products your competitors are planning? Trademarks can reveal details such as product name and the good or service that is being developed.
The Wright State University Libraries is offering a free trademark workshop for persons interested in knowing more about the world of trademarks. The workshop is Saturday afternoon, June 16th, from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. in Room 241 of the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library on the WSU campus.
Designed for those with little to no knowledge about intellectual property marks, the workshop will review trademark basics, including the difference between federal, state and common law marks. The mechanics of searching will be demonstrated using the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Web site and the USPTO trademark database TESS.A hand's on portion will allow participants to practice some techniques demonstrated in the workshop.
Seating for the workshop is limited. For more information or to register, contact Ran Raider, patent and trademark reference specialist for the Paul Laurence Dunbar Library, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (937) 775-3521.
