(NEW YORK) – The Jewelers Vigilance Committee (“JVC”) is pleased to announce the release of its latest publication, “I’ve Got An Idea! JVC’s Guide to Intellectual Property Law”. This handbook is intended for any business in the jewelry industry that is interested in learning more about how to protect their intellectual property. Sponsored by Kwiat, this book will provide legal education to a large segment of JVC’s membership and those who create intellectual property, whether that takes the form of designs, inventions or brands. It also runs as a companion piece to the JVC’s “Guide to Selling Jewelry in the 21st Century: Legal Compliance for Designers, Independent Jewelers, and Online Sellers”, adding to the valuable compliance information included there.
The guide includes information on a myriad of intellectual property topics. These include protecting jewelry designs through copyright law, protecting brand names, slogans and logos through trademark law, protecting inventions and industrial designs through patent law, and other forms of intellectual property. It also includes real-life examples and step-by-step instructions for applying to register your copyright or trademark.
“Understanding intellectual property law is extremely important for any business. This guide will help everyone in the business of designing, manufacturing, distributing, and selling jewelry and jewelry supplies understand how to protect their valuable creations, but not infringe on the rights of others,” said Cecilia Gardner, JVC’s President & CEO.
The guide costs $20 for JVC members, and $25 for non-members, and is available for purchase by calling the JVC at 212-997-2002.
