The Program:

As a speaker, author, or consultant are you concerned about:

  • Audience members taking your signature stories and retelling them as their own?
  • Other presenters hijacking your techniques and titles?
  • Clients blatantly using your copyrighted handouts for their own training programs?

This happens much more often than you realize and can cost you much more money than you imagine!

Have you searched the Web and been shocked to discover that people you don’t know are profiting from your articles, speeches, and books? Have you been appalled to find others using your material verbatim on their blogs and websites? Have you been left speechless when an attendee came up to you after your presentation and said, “I loved that story the first time I heard it at a seminar given by X”? All this without attribution, permission, or compensation to you.

In this program, you will learn:

  • To think about your intellectual property (IP) in a new way
  • How theft of your IP occurs
  • Steps to take if someone’s domain name infringes on your trademark
  • What to do if your creative work is copied/used without your permission
  • How to market and pitch without losing your IP rights
  • Several effective ways to protect your “crown jewels”
  • The legal protections available to you to take back your IP

Ignorance of your intellectual property rights is not bliss. With the burgeoning global impact of e-commerce, others can easily steal your proprietary materials and not pay you a cent — unless you take the specific steps outlined in this eye-opening, take-notes-as-fast-as-you-can program.
