Trademark Basics

The Mississippi Library Commission is pleased to announce that Trademark Basics, an informative workshop, will be held at our facility August 6, 2015 from 9:00 am - 11:30 am. Organized by Lawrence Smith, our Patent and Trademark Librarian and presented by Managing Attorney for Trademark Outreach at the US Patent and Trademark Office Craig Morris, this event will shed light on the mysterious and complex world of trademarks. A few of the many talking points are:
  • Learn how trademark, copyright, patent, domain name, and business name registrations all differ.
  • Critical factors to select a trademark that will be both federally registerable and legally protectable.
  • The importance of doing a complete search and whether an attorney should be used.
  • What may happen if another trademark owner believes it has stronger rights in a mark and issues a "cease-and-desist" letter.
  • Information that the USPTO does in the federal registration process and how to avoid "scams" perpetrated by companies that request fees for services not required by the USPTO.
Email Mr. Smith at to RSVP. Light refreshments will be provided.
