The University of New Hampshire will host a creative works — works that include copyrights, trademarks or both — symposium on Wednesday, April 29, to educate faculty, staff and students, as well as interested members of the local community. The symposium will explore the definition of creative works as well as mechanisms to protect and commercialize them. The symposium will be held at the UNH Memorial Union Building (MUB) from 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. The event, which includes parking and lunch, is free for UNH employees and students and $25 for public admission.
