Recent high profile  trademark and copyright infringement cases (see recent news story here) drive home the fact that companies must plan ahead to protect  their patents, intellectual property, ideas and trademarks.

Learn how to protect your company’s ideas, products and business practices by attending MITA's October event.
Topics covered:

- Learn how to streamline the process and file in multiple countries at once.
