NKITA to host session on trademark basics for small businesses

 Northern Kentucky International Trade & Affairs will host its next session on trademark basics at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) (300 Buttermilk Pike, Suite 330 Ft. Mitchell, KY 41017) from 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m. on Tuesday, September 17.

Craig Morris, Managing Attorney for Trademark Educational Outreach at the Office of the Commissioner for Trademarks in the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Alexandria, Virginia will present. He is currently spearheading the effort for increased USPTO educational activities in the area of trademark fundamentals.

“Trademarks, copyrights, patents, domain names and business name registrations are all different,” said Debby Shipp, Vice President of International Trade & Affairs for the NKY Chamber. “That’s why it is so important for business owners to know the fundamentals of how to select, register, and protect a trademark.”

Attendees will learn why new businesses should select a trademark that can be registered federally and legally protectable, the importance of doing a complete search, when to use an attorney, what to do if another trademark owner sends a “cease-and-desist” letter, the role of the USPTO, and how to avoid trademark scams.

Registration for the NKY International Trade & Affairs session is $20 for NKY Chamber Members and $30 for Future NKY Chamber Members. Registration is available online here.
