Protecting Your Association's Intellectual Property
A webinar on best practices & new safeguards
Recorded on December 11, 2014



Associations that lack strong intellectual property protections stand to lose more than assets: they stand to lose control over their image, reputation and message.

So what exactly does it take to safeguard your original content? How can you prevent your association from being devalued or defamed? How can you keep what you share from being improperly re-shared? And who owns the photos, text, designs and ideas you republish on the web and in conferences, emails, videos or other channels?

Here’s how to find the answers that will protect your intellectual property assets and your brand.

Register now for Protecting Your Association’s Intellectual Property. In just 90 minutes, this webinar covers real-world practices you can apply immediately to manage unfavorable communications, protect intellectual property assets, and comply with FCC regulations governing everything from trademarks and copyrights to social media and domain names.

It’s an excellent primer on the basics as well as today’s newest issues. Plus, the Q&A session at the end gives you the chance to ask your own specific questions.
