Corral Your Ca$h Cow!
with Russ Riddle
As a business owner, your most valuable asset aside from people is your intellectual property. This session saddles you up to better protect, manage and fatten that cash cow.
• Distinguish between the intellectual property types
• Ensure ownership from the outset (employees vs. contractors)
• Ace copyrights and avoid copy-wrongs
• Master the trademark DOs and DONʼTs
• Preserve, Protect & Defend — Police your I.P.
• Stop rustling others’ cash cows
• Avoid “public domain” land mines
• Capitalize and comply with licensing opportunities
What do Barney®, Zig Ziglar, Thomas the Tank Engine® and you have in common? All have been served (or are about to be) by Russ Riddle!
Russ serves up quick wit, humorous storytelling and poignant tips, keeping you involved from start to finish. Having practiced marriage for 32 years, law for 24, fatherhood for 23, and braved adventures as a juvenile probation officer, realtor and newspaper columnist, Russ Riddle is convinced that we must never stop learning, laughing and leading.
His love of levity stems in part from an intellectual property law practice that has served such clients as Barney & Friends®, Wishbone®, Bob the Builder®, Thomas & Friends®, the voice of Jimmy Neutron® and impersonators of John Wayne and Michael Jackson.
As a degreed journalist and seasoned corporate trainer / public speaker, Russ has superb communication skills. He is the author of three books: LAWYER UP – The Smart Way, Corral Your Ca$h Cow Manual, and Persuasive vs. Abrasive.
Thank you to Jeff and his team at Bespoke Presentations for making all of the technology work behind the scenes so the Chapter can offer a recording of the program!
