Protecting Yourself & Your Property: Understanding State, Federal and International Law (Part 6)
In today’s Episode (42), we are wrapping up the initial series on property and intellectual property, and I am really excited about helping you understand local, state, federal, and international a bit better, and how each plays an important role in protecting yourself, your property, and particularly, your intellectual property.
I’m going to walk you through where to find each of these kinds of laws, how they are similar to each other - and a bit different than what you might think they are.
And, since I am in Louisiana, I will talk about Louisiana law from a state law standpoint, but the places that I tell you about to look for the law are going to be the same if you’re in a different state, so don’t freak out - just use the same logic for looking it up. There are a handful of links in the show notes, so go use those!
As always, there’s a ton we could go deep about, but right now, we are focusing on the foundations of law. Just like most of what we talk about, the law is a lot more straightforward than you think it is - or lawyers want you to believe it is. What I want to do is to help educate you about where to go looking for that information, and so that you know enough about it to know when you need help.
At the end, as always, I leave you with a bit of homework to start taking action today. Y’all ready? Let’s do this!
