A There are plenty of books and articles written on the subjects in question. I would suggest that you contact our circulation department (212-242-8000) and request a June 1999 issue of BE. Read the article "You've Got It Made." The piece references protecting your ideas and offers a resource guide. The February 2001 issue of BE offers suggestions on protecting your ideas from corporate entities (see Enterprise, "Hey, You Can't Do That"). "Streamlining the Process," Enterprise, March 2001, informs you about the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's efforts to reduce the time it takes to review applications, cut fees, and eliminate unnecessary steps (www.uspto.gov). The Black Entertainment and Sports Lawyers Association (www.besla.org) has provided professionals in the fields of entertainment and sports with opportunities to share and exchange information, learn of industry opportunities, and support one another in this highly competitive environment.
