State Charities Regulators and Intellectual Property of Nonprofits
When establishing appropriate internal controls, nonprofit organizations must implement a system of procedures which protect the organization’s portfolio of assets. This portfolio includes both tangible assets (e.g. cash, property etc) and intangible assets, such as the organization’s intellectual property. Failing to protect a nonprofit’s intellectual property may trigger the jurisdiction of a respective state attorney general. This webinar introduces viewers to the role state charities regulators may play in overseeing and ensuring that nonprofit organizations protect their intellectual property. Originally streamed live to a regulator-only audience in February 2015, webinar participants discuss a wide range of topics including:
- Basic terms a state regulator should be familiar with when it comes to a nonprofit organization’s intellectual property;
- Issues that may arise regarding a nonprofit organization's intellectual property, which may implicate state attorneys general’s oversight and action;
- General board governance duties and considerations when managing a nonprofit’s intellectual property portfolio.
