Legalities of Social Media and Intellectual Property for Wine Businesses

Legalities of Social Media and Intellectual Property for Wine Businesses taught how to protect the competitive edge and goodwill of your wine business by developing strong, protectable technology, trademarks and branding. Seminar participants learned how NOT to be caught unawares, as was fourth-generation wine-maker Walter S. Taylor, about what you can and cannot use. They learned how to:

  • Bully Hill Vineyards How to avoid losses by assuring a right to use or obtaining clearance for third-party rights in intellectual property.
  • Bill Gates, Philippe Kahn, Mitch Kapor and Bob Frankston all laid claim to one of the most valuable works of our time, even if you only recognize only one of their names.
  • Own and secure your own intellectual property for your winery or wine business, before it’s too late.
