The PLLIP Education Committee is pleased to announce that on Wednesday, November 16th at 1:00 EST, noted patent search expert Ron Kaminecki will present a webinar entitled: 

The Basics of In-Depth Trademark Searching

This presentation will take the mystery out of using specialized features found only in trademark search systems. Learn to narrow a search by category, word, word proximity, character within a word or even specify a subset of variable characters and their position within a word.

Webinar registration

The webinar system allows registrations beyond the attendance limit of 100 people. In case you miss it, the session will be recorded and posted to the PLLIP Community as soon as possible.

Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your trademark searching capabilities!
