Wednesday, November 02, 2016 at 6:30 PM -- 95th Street Library
Intellectual property as a business asset has become increasingly important in the information age. This workshop focuses on two forms of intellectual property: trademarks and copyrights. Although somewhat similar, each covers different forms of expression for different purposes, and each offers different kinds of protection.

The workshop is useful for entrepreneurs who have existing businesses and those considering beginning a business.
