Jack Hicks to Present at Las Vegas Furniture Market

Jack Hicks, a noted intellectual property attorney with Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, PLLC., will be speaking at the upcoming Las Vegas Furniture Market. Hicks' presentation will be on, "Are You Selling a Design Knockoff? Get Ready to Be Sued!"

The intellectual property laws of the United States protect the owners of original furniture designs against unauthorized manufacture, sale, importation and even use. This is true even if the "knockoff" piece of furniture is made overseas. And recent industry changes mean that retailers, manufacturers and distributors who violate these trademark, patent and/or copyright laws are increasingly likely to be sued.
