Connecticut Technology Council presents Connectciut Growth Network: Greater Hartford Innovation Cell. This month’s topic is: Five Easy Ways to Lose Your Intellectual Property Rights, with guest speaker Catherine Intravia.

A company's intellectual property -- such as its logo, tag lines, trademarks, licenses, software, website, documentation, trade secrets, materials, patents -- can be a critical factor in determining whether a company will be able to expand, obtain funding, or go public and doubts about ownership of intellectual property can seriously threaten a company's future plans. In fact, the loss of intellectual property may be so serious that it might threaten a company's survival. Taking certain easy steps to protect your Intellectual Property will go a long way towards protecting some of your company's most valuable assets and allow you to focus on building your business.
