Trademarks for Brands and Bands

With Jasmine Braxton, Esq.

Learn why picking a name is just the beginning with this workshop on how to protect yourself with trademarks! This workshop will explore the ins and outs of trademark protection, and how to avoid issues with existing trademarks. Learn what happens to your name if your band breaks up, or if you discover another artist or creative brand with your name. This interactive workshop will explain these concepts with real life examples and a suggested timeline for how to prepare for your own registration.
