For those interested in learning more about the valuable benefits of federal trademark registration and how to successfully navigate the registration process at the USPTO, it’s time to mark your calendars for an upcoming educational opportunity in Minneapolis on Tuesday February 16, 2016.

Here is the official brochure for the event, here is an online link for information on how to register for this event, and a listing of the talented panel of speakers for the day.

Attendees of this live Minnesota Continuing Legal Education full day seminar will learn how to overcome a wide variety of grounds for refusal, benefit from strategies and valuable tips for handling ex parte appeals and requests for reconsideration, understand how TTAB proceedings can help a brand owner’s registration efforts, especially in light of the Supreme Court’s recent B&B Hardware decision, and receive valuable insights from former USPTO Examining Attorneys.

As an added bonus over the lunch hour, attendees will learn how to develop a reputation for thought leadership using various social media tools, as I moderate an engaging discussion with these social media mavens: Aaron Keller of Capsule, Shayla Stern of Fast Horse, Seth Leventhal of Minnesota Litigator, and last, but certainly not least, Ron Coleman of Likelihood of Confusion.

We’re counting the days, and we hope to see you there . . . .
