In the ever expanding arena of social media, blogs, and online advertising, it can be difficult for brands to cut through the noise to build impact, recognition, and consumer attention.

Join Fish attorneys Catherine Stockell and Irina Lyapis as they discuss best practice strategies for developing, registering, and enforcing non-traditional marks. Key topics include:

  • New ways to identify products and services
  • Non-traditional trademark application Do’s and Don’ts
  • Application of secondary meaning where required
  • Considerations for marketing and advertising departments

Fish & Richardson will apply for 1.0 hour of general CLE credit in most states. If you would like to receive CLE credit, register with your state bar information.
