I recently finished a one-hour trademark course for Lawline.com. Lawline.com is a Continuing Legal Education site that provides training for attorneys, but you can view free snippets of the full course–divided up by topic–at this URL: http://learn.lawline.com/?cid=1545&title=Benefits-and-Challenges-of-International-Trademark-Registrations. Lawyers who need CLE can register at Lawline.com to see the full course for credit. New York is approved; I haven’t checked into other states yet. The course is titled Benefits and Challenges of International Trademark Registrations. It includes discussion of U.S. lawyers using both direct filings and the Madrid Protocol to secure trademark protection for their U.S. clients that export to other countries, as well as information about helping non-U.S. clients who need trademark protection in the U.S. The course also discusses the advantages of using CTM (Community Trade Mark) registrations in some situations.
