In this basic-level program, seasoned practitioners will present the nuts and bolts of copyright and trademark registration practice, IP licensing, Entertainment Law and an introduction to the various litigation challenges that may arise. Participants will receive a clear picture of how to handle IP basics and beyond, with IP counsel as advisor or if necessary, co-counsel. You can’t afford to miss this important introduction to the
