Why lose market share to counterfeit or knockoff products?

SEMA has assembled an all-star cast of experts to help you learn how to protect your intellectual property through patents, trademarks, and copyrights. This invaluable seminar, scheduled Monday, November 3, a day before the 2008 SEMA Show begins, will allow you to focus on this important topic without worrying about lost Show sales.

Expert panelists with first-hand knowledge of the specialty-equipment market will cover the basics, from deciding what kind of IP needs protection, registering your IP with the proper government authorities, and developing a plan to enforce your IP rights.

The panelists will also share valuable tips on working with United States Customs and other agencies to help stop the importation of counterfeit or infringing products.
