This course will teach you the basics of how to identify and protect the intellectual assets of your venture whether it is a kitchen table start up, a non-profit, a creative enterprise, or new company. It also teaches you how to avoid intellectual property land mines such as accidental trademark and copyright infringement.

    The class was well worth the price. Heather did an excellent job and was very informative. I came away from the class with the answer to the questions I had. Looking forward to the follow up classes Heather spoke of. Frank
