Let’s talk about trademarks, copyrights, patents and related litigation with respect to how these topics relate to wastewater service providers, dealers and distributors. Specifically, we will discuss why trademarks, trade dress, brands, branding, and product and store names are important considerations for these individuals and companies. Learn the steps individuals and companies should take if they are the subject of trademark infringement or accused of infringing another’s trademark. We will also discuss utility and design patents, what protection patents provide to the patent owner, what to do if a person or company is accused of patent infringement, and the law of copyright as it concerns websites and related media.
