GETSmart: Patents, Trademarks and Copyrights

The 2019 Chamber GETSmart (Grow, Engage, Train) business education series focuses monthly classes on issues that affect small businesses. The 1-hour class begins with an online module produced by the US Small Business Administration and then hosts a local expert with relevant experience in that field of study.

This course has four key objectives:

- Explain the importance of protecting your intellectual property

- Determine the differences between patents, trademarks, and copyrights

- List examples of times when you would file for a patent or trademark, or register for a copyright
