For a wine, beer, spirit, or cider company, trademarks are among the company’s most valuable assets.  Kevin Regan will present a guest lecture focusing the importance of trademark protection in the wine industry for students from the Walla Walla Community College’s Institute for Enology and Viticulture on April 5th.  Kevin will discuss the importance of conducting a trademark search and applying to register trademarks for wine brands before selling wine under the trademark.  He will also provide an overview of some of the other legal issues that wineries must confront, including grape purchase agreements and distribution agreements.
