Our firm enjoys spending time with business people, community leaders, budding entrepreneurs, local artists, and other community members. Whether we are hanging out with folks at the Salem Red Sox ballpark, attending chamber of commerce and Roanoke-Blacksburg Technology Council functions, or interacting with local artists in association with The Artful Lawyer, A Fine Gallery Inc. (our downstairs art gallery), we pride ourselves in engaging with the community. Our team also enjoys speaking on a myriad of topics that will help you grow your business both personally and professionally. We host Shark Bites monthly in our Blacksburg office and at the Grandin CoLab in Roanoke. Please see our calendar below for full registration information for this month’s Shark Bite. We are happy to speak to your group on intellectual property protection (copyrights, patents, trademarks, and trade secrets), business formation, contract drafting, social media usage, internet/technology law, and more.

Theirs, yours or fair game — who owns what rights in creative works and inventions? If you didn’t create it, can you use it? If you did create it, what can you do to protect it? How do licenses both expand and restrict access to intellectual property? What about the impact of widespread Internet and social media use — how does this new era of “electronic sharing” change things, or does it? Join us as we look at the ever-changing landscape of IP ownership rights in the digital age. Registration below.
