Is the intellectual property at your nonprofit protected?  Do you know what is considered intellectual property? What if someone else uses the name of the fundraiser that you do every year? What can you do about it? This episode looks at how your nonprofit can protect its intellectual property. Protecting your nonprofit's assets, your name, logo, events and more, is an important part of maximizing your impact. Our guest, Jeanne Seewald, will help answer these questions and make sense of trademark and copyright law as it applies to nonprofit organizations. Jeanne is a partner and Board member at Hahn Loeser and Parks LLP. Her practice focuses on intellectual property, general business, and mergers and acquisitions.

This episode's Coaches Corner answers the listener's question in "Part Two: How Can Nonprofits be More Intentional with the Workforce Development Ladder?' with Sheryl Soukup, Impact Coach and President of Soukup Strategic Solutions
