We are putting together a pretty special webinar you might want to consider experiencing: Strategies for Owning Product Designs. The live version will be aired Tuesday March 31st at 3 PM CST, sponsored by Minnesota Continuing Legal Education.

I’ll be joined by legendary designer Bob Worrell, founder of the Worrell design firm, Derek Mathers, Worrell’s business development manager (and guest blogger on Duets), and my partner Jeff Stone at Winthrop & Weinstine (another Duets guest blogger) who has shared his thoughts about the power of design patents before, herehere and here.

I’m looking forward to sharing some thoughts and strategies about how to own product designs forever, long after design patent protection expires, so we’ll be talking about the key role that marketing types play in realizing the goal of owning product design and trade dress: Calling Non-Traditional Trademarks By Name.

This promises to be a lively 90 minute discussion, to sign up, here is the link, we hope to have you join us in a couple weeks.
