Trademarks, services marks and logos for a company’s brands or products can be among the most valuable of its intellectual property assets. Marks that are unregisterable with the U.S. Trademark Office and/or are already used by third parties can lead to wasted marketing dollars and lost customer goodwill.

Going to listen to everything I can by this guy.
Very knowledgeable and experienced presenter. Did a gret job of covering a lot of material in overview form in a way that allows for more detailed follow up and inquiry. Excellent. Thank you.
Randy is one of the best presenters in this format. I've watched 3 of his presentations so far and I'm looking forward to more. Given the amount of information he covers and how in-depth he goes into topics, he is someone that I'd definitely enjoy with a 1.5 or 2 hour training!
One of your BEST presenters. Great energy and very engaging.
