The Online Home of Browning-Smith P.C.


Browning-Smith PC believes that successful protection of intellectual property requires education of the client.   We assist our clients with this education in many ways including actively providing client specific training, delivering educational talks for the our client base at trades shows and by writing articles pertinent to our clients needs.  Below are several articles written by Tammy that we encourage you to read as you educate yourself about the importance of intellectual property.


Intellectual Property Basics

Tammy published a series of three articles several years ago in the Decorative Painter Magazine that cover many basic intellectual property principles.  These articles are a good starting point for artists new to the field.
