Trademarks Workshop and Protecting Your Ideas & Covering Your AssetsĀ®
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

It is with great pride and pleasure that I can finally announce that Protecting Your Ideas and Covering Your Assets® is now a registered trademark of Mincov Law Corporation.

It was more than just a “file & wait” experience, since the Canadian Intellectual Property Office cited another trademark “Protect Your Ideas” previously registered by another firm against my application. It took some creative effort, including references to French language translation of the trademark, to overcome this objection.

First down, several more to go.

I am also excited to announce that I will be conducting a free workshop on trademarks through Vancouver Business Network on September 17, 2013 at 6PM.

The original title of the presentation “You got a brand. Now what?” was renamed to “How To Protect Your Brand With Trademarks” for greater clarity. But the idea remains the same, it’s not enough to come up with a good name, logo or tagline. As any other business asset, you need to protect your trademarks.

No entrepreneur starts a business with an idea that their business will be just like everybody else’s. How many people refer to Facebook as “Mark Zuckerberg’s website?” Successful brands transcend their owners. This is the power of a brand. And if you don’t protect it, you are not being serious about your business.

The Meetup organizers charge $5.00 at the door, but the workshop itself is free.

Please RSVP at http://www.meetup.com/the-vancouver-business-network/events/138147612/ to attend this event.

If you are an entrepreneur, you need to know when, how and why to protect your brand.

If you are in the business of brand development (designers, advertisers, marketers, printers, etc.), you will learn how to provide massive added value to your customers at no extra cost to you.

If you want clear, no B.S. answers about your trademarks, you don’t want to miss this presentation.

MLC Birthday
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

Today, Mincov Law Corporation celebrates its second birthday.

It’s been a great year.

I was blessed to have served dozens and dozens of clients who are now my best walking testimonials.

I have streamlined a lot of processes and as a result launched the Trademark Factory™ that offers Canadian business owners the best way to register their trademarks in Canada.

In terms of my personal, professional and business growth, this was the best year ever.

Before I start accepting your congratulations and best wishes, I would like to thank all of my clients.

I really mean that.

Maybe letting your customers know how much you appreciate them is considered “old school” these days, but it matters deeply to me. I wouldn’t be here without you and I value that relationship intensely.

I would also like to thank all those who have supported me along this journey. I am so grateful to have you by my side.

Thank you!

Now, time to celebrate! Tomorrow will be the first day of MLC’s biggest 3rd year breakthrough.

Non-Disclosure Agreement Templates added
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

I have just added a new template for one-way Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA) to the Intellectual Property Agreements / Templates page.

There are many free templates of NDAs that one can easily find on the web. Why would I offer mine as a paid download?

The free forms are usually overly simplistic and don’t cover half the issues that need to be covered.

Often, however, when I am asked to draft one to fit a particular client’s circumstances, the cost of the NDA can become too steep for a small business client.

Continuing the trend I started with the copyright agreements, this NDA is designed to help businesses bridge the gap between having a poorly written or no agreement at all and having to spend a fortune on a customized one.

As always, you can check out the preview and see for yourself that this template has more bases covered than any other free non-disclosure agreement template you can find on the web.

I hope this helps.
