Intellectual property (IP) law is in the news a lot recently, largely thanks to a new EU law being pushed forward called Article 13. Essentially, it’s a regulation that strong arms YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter into taking more action in preventing copyrighted material from being distributed online. Those platforms are basically unavoidable these days, so it is important for people to understand basic guidelines surrounding copyrighted material so that their content is not blocked, muted, or removed.
Properly protecting one’s assets is an important aspect for anyone with original ideas, artwork, or branding. While material possessions are relatively simple to insure, taking care of original works is a bit more complicated and often confusing. How does one know whether they need a copyright, trademark, or some combination of the two? Luckily, Hartman Global not only helps protect those assets, but can explain the “why” behind it all, as well.
Educating the next generation is vital to ensuring a secure and successful future for our children, which is why Gary Hartman of Hartman Global has been going to Purdue University for the past few years to speak with students there. This past November, Hartman went to the ABE-490 class at Purdue to speak with students there about the importance of intellectual property law and the dynamic changes it has seen over the years.
Domenica Hartman of Hartman Global Intellectual Property Law gave a talk this November at Purdue West Lafayette for the Women in Engineering Seminar, something she has done for the last twenty years. Engineering is a field that has been lacking female participants for some years, which is why encouragement and enticement are so vital to seeing the field level out on a more equal footing. In 2012, just under 20 percent of Bachelor’s degrees in engineering were for women, which includes a vast array of areas within the field, whether chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical, or software to name a few.
When it comes to Intellectual Property Law, no one keeps their finger on the pulse of the industry quite like Hartman Global does. Founders Gary and Domenica Hartman, and their qualified attorneys, have been providing expertise in trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets and more in order to safeguard the interests of their clients on the world stage for over 25 years.
