This Stopfakes Roadshow for small and medium sized businesses includes strategies for protecting and enforcing intellectual property when exporting to foreign markets and advice for avoiding common pitfalls. Participants will have the chance to ask export questions involving patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights and domain names. At the conclusion of the program, participants can take advantage of one-on-one consultations with intellectual property experts to get targeted advice. Small and medium-sized businesses in particular will benefit from this unique opportunity. Trade experts and attorneys from the Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA) and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) are the speakers that will be providing information on how companies and individuals can protect and enforce intellectual property to get the most out of exporting abroad.
