The past decade has seen a drastic increase in brand ambassadors and influencers in the entertainment and merchandise industries. Along with their success comes fame, wealth, and—for some clients—unwanted recognition. For a variety of reasons clients may choose to protect their identities and addresses, but the USPTO’s pseudonym/alias disclosure requirements and domicile address issues complicate this issue. In this webinar, Matt Kulseth of Mighty Marks will guide participants through various strategies to protect client anonymity. Topics will include:
* An explanation of §2(c) office actions and how they make protecting clients' identities difficult
* Examples such as famous artists and content creators like BANKSY and DREAM who have fought to maintain their anonymity
* Suggestions for protecting clients' right to privacy, including forming corporations, filing overseas, and more

Everyone who’s registered for this webinar will receive an email with a link to the recording.
