Straight from the Lawyer’s Mouth: How to Protect Your Intellectual Property


As a business owner in the speaking industry, your most valuable asset aside from people is your intellectual property. This session will saddle you up to better protect, manage and fatten that cash cow. We will receive unprecedented legal advice for two hours from Russ, and learn how to protect our valuable assets in several ways.

Valuable Takeaways:

  • Distinguish between the intellectual property types
  • Ensure ownership from the outset (employees vs. contractors)
  • Ace copyrights and avoid copy-wrongs
  • Master the trademark DO’s and DONʼTs
  • Stop rustling others’ cash cows

Featured Guest Speaker:

What do Barney® the purple dinosaur, Thomas the Tank Engine® and YOU have in common? All have been served (or are about to be) by Russ Riddle!

Having practiced marriage for 35 years, law for 27, fatherhood for 26, and braved adventures as a juvenile probation officer newspaper columnist and professional speaker, Russ is convinced that we must never stop learning and laughing.

His love of levity stems in part from an intellectual property law practice that has served such clients as Barney®, Bob the Builder®, Thomas the Tank Engine®, the voices of Jimmy Neutron® and Larry the Cucumber®, as well as many NSA “characters” throughout the country.

Russ currently serves on the National Speakers Association’s Board of Directors and is incoming chair of the editorial committee for SPEAKER Magazine. He’s the author of two books: Lawyer Up – The Smart Way and Persuasive vs. Abrasive – The judges have ruled, as well as the intellectual property manual Corral Your Cash Cow.

He is appropriately known as the “Anomaly at Law®,” for he’s down to earth, clearly communicates and lavishes others with levity.
