In addition, with all my posts on disclaimers I wanted to share these silly disclaimers with you all.

Thank you for everyone who participated in voting for the subject matter of the next talk. After Social Media and the Law it seems everyone is still craving to hear about Intellectual Property.
So the next talk at Hawaii’s first coworking space will be “Protecting Your Brand: An Overview of Intellectual Property Law.” Here is the rest of the important information:

  • Location: The Box Jelly, located at Fishcake Furniture Store – 307 Kamani St.

  • Time: starts at 6:30 p.m., talk begins 7:00 p.m. and ends at 8:00 p.m., Q&A to follow
  • Description: The price of this talk will be $10 for members of The Box Jelly and $15 for non-members. A brief overview of intellectual property laws from the perspective of small business. Basics of trade/servicemark, tradename, trade secrets, copyright and patent laws will be discussed and the steps a business can take when navigating IP situations. Materials included.

In addition, I will be doing the Social Media and the Law talk, again on the following week on Monday, October 24, 2011 for all of those you that expressed an interest, but could not make it. The talk will follow the same format as the one just mentioned. Same starting/ending time, location, and price.

Also lookout next week on the Aloha Startups website, as I will be contributing a special post about the IP topic.

Hey everyone,
I will be doing a brief 30-45 minute talk on business entity formation tomorrow night (Wed., 9/21).  It will be on some of the topics that you have seen in the Draw the Law series.  It is primarily geared for people thinking of starting a new business and things to consider for planning on the legal end of things.

Info on Business Entity Formation:

  • Where:  The Box Jelly, Hawaii’s first coworking space
  • When: 9/21 starting at 6 – 7 pm – after the talk there will be time for Q&A and networking
  • Price: The cost of the presentation is a mere $5.00 and if you’d like some specialized materials that go with the presentation that will be an extra $3.00.

I hope to see you there, but subscribe to my blawg, as I will be doing more talks at The Box Jelly and other locations in the future.

Professional Services Social

As an Oahu Director of the Young Lawyers Division I would like to let you also know that the YLD and the Shidler School of Business Alumni Association will be putting on their Professional Services Social this Thursday (9/22). It will be at Ka Restaurant and Lounge and it begins at 6 pm.

For the rest of the week check back, as I will be doing a post about my Leadership Institute visit with some of the State’s public servants from the “We the People” program set-up by former representative and managing director of Honolulu City and County, Kirk Caldwell.

Also Draw the Law will be on Thursday, as I will be at the Hawaii State Bar Convention all day Friday (and who knows I may get some tweets in, so follow me on Twitter @Rkhewesq).
