Intellectual Property: What’s Top of Mind for Nonprofits
June 9, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m.
Nonprofit organizations sometimes overlook one of their most valuable assets — their intellectual property. Even nonprofits with limited budgets can take steps to protect their logos, names, marks, ideas, and inventions from the kind of misuse that could put the organization’s finances or reputation at risk. Equally important is understanding licensing and permission to use materials from outside sources and navigating the rules around social media content. Participants will receive a checklist to help spot issues related to their organization’s intellectual property.
This seminar will answer common IP questions, including:
- Why is intellectual property protection important to my nonprofit?
- How do trademarks, copyrights, and other types of intellectual property protections work?
- If my nonprofit hires an outside party to create content, produce a logo, design a website, take photographs, etc., who owns the rights?
