About Roadshows

STOPfakes Roadshows are returning! Roadshows deliver critically important information about intellectual property to audiences that need it most -- start-ups, entrepreneurs, small and medium-sized businesses, independent creators, and inventors. The information is presented by experts from multiple government agencies whose missions advance stakeholders' intellectual property interests. Participants will receive information on a range of topics, including identifying and protecting the various intellectual property assets; mechanisms for obtaining IP protection in overseas markets; strategies for determining where to seek protection; and the value of copyright and trade secrets protection to their businesses. Presentations will also address how to combat counterfeits on international e-commerce sites and what additional government resources are available to help U.S. business bolster intellectual property protections. 

Some shows will feature on-site help with the copyright registration process and with recording marks with Customs to exclude counterfeit goods from entering the United States.  Participants will also have opportunities to meet one-on-one with the presenters to discuss intellectual property issues of primary concern.  In short, participants will learn information vital to competing in an increasingly global environment.
