ASID Illinois NW Suburban Peer Group Meeting



Linda Navara and Randa Clark are inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting presented by David M. Adler* | Adler Law Group.

Topic: ASID Peer Group-The Importance of Intellectual Property For Designers-CEU

Description: From fasteners to furniture, creative professionals are taking steps to protect and promote authentic, original design. Designers, manufacturers and their employees need to know what steps they can take to protect their designs, their businesses, their brands, and their profits. At the same time, some artists claim designers are making authorized use of distinctive patterns and cultural motifs. As more designers develop signature styles and product lines, protecting original design is more important than ever, since the industry pushes the lines between inspiration and replication. The discussion will address issues related to how to protect original design (copyright & design patent) and branding (trademark, unfair competition).

Since 1997, David M. Adler has managed a boutique law practice focused on creative professionals and industries, providing advice on rights creation, enforcement, and commercialization through contracts, licenses, and corporate structures. David has worked with hundreds of interiors designers, design firms, architects, fabricators, showrooms, and others in the design industry, throughout the United States on issues related to copyright and trademark identification, protection, and commercialization.
