Intellectual Property and Its Application to the Real Estate Industry
About this Program
This CLE seminar will focus on the legal area of Intellectual Property and its application to the Real Estate industry. After a general introduction regarding the purpose and value of securing intellectual property protection, the seminar will discuss the use and benefits of trademarks, copyrights, patents and related rights in protecting creations and innovations that span the Real Estate arena. Special focus will be placed on the protection of architectural designs including new buildings plans as well as the protection of interior design and furniture creations.
Attention will also be paid to do's and don'ts in avoiding infringement of third parties' proprietary rights. In addition, the area of trade dress will be explored in some detail in terms of its applicability in protecting the "look and feel" of retail and business establishments as well as commercial and residential developments. Finally, the seminar will incorporate the principles of Intellectual Property protection and its concerns into a discussion of the types of agreements, assignments and licenses that may be required in negotiating and completing all types of Real Estate transactions.
very good lesson and presentation.
New spin for me on topic I am familiar with. I particularly liked Ms. Muller - funny. Excellent slides - the visuals really help with this topic.
It was very interesting - never really thought about IP and real estate before.
One of the better courses I've seen on Lawline.com - very thorough for such a short presentation.
