“We work with many different clients on brand strategy and development and part of this process involves researching names, taglines and logos to ensure that we are not infringing upon another brand’s intellectual property or trademark,” said Ray Baird, President of RiechesBaird. “The Brandjacked webcast will provide great insight and tips to help marketers, branding professionals and legal counsel protect the brands they represent,” added Baird.
“With our innovative technology, we are changing the marketing and advertising game from a ‘hope and prayer’ approach to one that is fully guaranteed. We are taking the guesswork out of building brands. In this webcast, we’ll cover shocking examples of how your investment to build your brand is being hi-jacked in the digital space,” said Tim Blett, principle at LCX Digital.
