Trademark Searching for Federal Government Employees (NEW DATE)

Update: This event has been rescheduled from February 11 to March 11. If you registered for the February 11 date and can no longer attend the rescheduled date of March 11 please contact Kortney Hammonds at [email protected]. If you do plan to attend, no other action is necessary

If you are a federal government employee who works with trademarks in your agency, this free program from the US Patent and Trademark Office will offer a unique opportunity to learn about how to conduct a preliminary trademark search and how to determine when a full search may be advisable. Participants will leave the webinar with in-depth information about trademark searching and the resources available for further information.

Topics to be covered include:
* what a trademark is in the federal agency context
* selecting a “good” trademark
* conducting a search of a trademark, including preliminary searches (including “how to” demos) and full searches
* evaluating search results, including scenarios commonly encountered in searching, preparing, and communicating a search opinion within your agency
* handling searches when the trademark is used outside the United States

Please note that registration will be limited, to ensure maximum opportunity for participants to ask questions. This event will not be recorded, but it will be repeated later this year.
