Business Series: Protecting Your Intellectual Property: Copyrights and Trade Secrets, Dan Forman

Dan Forman, Managing Partner of CDF's Los Angeles office and Chair of CDF's Unfair Competition & Trade Secret Practice Group, will be co-presenting “Business Series: Protecting Your Intellectual Property: Copyrights and Trade Secrets,” on October 23, 2018 for the Los Angeles Law Library.

As a business owner, you try to do things that set you apart from the competition. Usually, you do not want the competition to know your important business information, and you don't want them to profit from your creative expressions and original works. In this class, learn how to protect the information and work that gives your business an edge.

Class covers:

  • Copyrights: what is protected, and how to make sure no one profits from your original works and expressions
  • Trade secrets: how to obtain, protect, and enforce
  • Non-disclosure agreements and non-competition agreements
  • Methods for protecting sensitive information
