Thank you for everyone who participated in voting for the subject matter of the next talk. After Social Media and the Law it seems everyone is still craving to hear about Intellectual Property. So the next talk at Hawaii's first coworking space will be "Protecting Your Brand: An Overview of Intellectual Property Law." Here is the rest of the important information:
- Location: The Box Jelly, located at Fishcake Furniture Store - 307 Kamani St.
- Date: Tuesday, October 18th, 2011
- Time: starts at 6:30 p.m., talk begins 7:00 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m., Q&A to follow
- Description: The price of this talk will be $10 for members of The Box Jelly and $15 for non-members. A brief overview of intellectual property laws from the perspective of small business. Basics of trade/servicemark, tradename, trade secrets, copyright and patent laws will be discussed and the steps a business can take when navigating IP situations. Materials included.
In addition, I will be doing the Social Media and the Law talk, again on the following week on Monday, October 24, 2011 for all of those you that expressed an interest, but could not make it. The talk will follow the same format as the one just mentioned. Same starting/ending time, location, and price.
Also lookout next week on the Aloha Startups website, as I will be contributing a special post about the IP topic.
