Overview (Program Summary)

Smart & Biggar, together with the ACC Ontario Chapter invite you to a webinar on the ins and outs of Intellectual Property law for in-house counsel.

In addition, we will debunk some common misunderstandings about IP among in-house counsel, including:

  •  "Copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets are all kind of the same thing";
  •  "You can just make up the IP stuff up as you go";
  •  "IP is the marketing department's problem"; and
  •  "IP law never changes, so your book from 1988 is a great reference"

We'll cover IP basics and delve into recent changes in Canadian IP law and we will help you build or improve an IP strategy for trademarks and patents, and we will help you avoid common mistakes and pitfalls.

This program contains 90 minutes of Substantive CPD Content.

This event is open and free of charge to in-house counsel only and you must RSVP to attend. Please RSVP by no later than Monday, May 25, 2020.
