Meeting canceled due to snow!
Going Global: Real World Trademark Triage and Portfolio Management Strategies
Presenter: Lou Ebling
Description: A trademark portfolio is a collection of registered marks, pending applications and often unregistered marks owned by a business venture. Apart from the traditional route, these rights arise through licenses or franchise agreements, co-branding agreements or other transactions. “Portfolio management” involves developing strategies for acquiring, exploiting, maintaining and enforcing these rights in a way that maximizes their value. Companies conducting business outside the U.S. face growing challenges in determining how best to obtain the widest trademark protection possible, exploit the properties and provide meaningful enforcement in an era of shrinking budgets and staff.
Our speaker, Lou Ebling, is Chair of Greenebaum Doll & McDonald’s Intellectual Property Practice Group and a graduate of Albion College and the University of Michigan Law School. Lou concentrates his legal practice on all aspects of US and international trademark law and also advises on internet, advertising, data privacy, patent and copyright issues.
