Attorneys from Erik M. Pelton & Associates, PLLC (“EMP&A”), will host the first of a new series of free trademark law webinars on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, from 12:00-1:00 PM EST.  The webinar, titled “Ten Essential Trademark Tips,” will feature an introduction to the fundamental concepts in the trademark law as well as practical lessons for obtaining and protecting trademark rights.

The webinar is free, and anyone interested in learning more about trademark law is welcome to join, regardless of expertise.  “Even though Americans encounter hundreds of trademarks everyday on the products they buy and in the advertisements they see and hear, people are often less familiar with the basic principles of trademark rights compared to other forms of intellectual property, like patents and copyrights,” said attorney Erik Pelton, founder of EMP&A. “The goal of our webinar series is to bridge that knowledge gap, so that individuals, entrepreneurs, small businesses, journalists, and others are able to recognize the role trademarks play in their personal and professional lives.”    

“Ten Essential Trademark Tips” will begin at 12:00 PM EST on Tuesday, January 25, 2011.  To participate by phone, call (217) 258-5590 [DO WE HAVE A TOLL FREE NUMBER?] and enter Pin Number 15613.  For more information about the webinar series, contact EMP&A by email ( [Correct address?]) or phone (703.525.8009).
