Technology companies are faced with a multitude of intellectual property opportunities and pitfalls. Resources available to companies in earlier growth stages can be spread thin and many times do not support a fully funded IP strategy. Still, there are things a tech company can do even on a limited budget to protect its valuable IP, maximize its return on investment and funding potential, and optimize its exit strategy. Please join us for an informative webinar during which we’ll discuss important IP issues every tech company should consider.
Panelists will cover these topics and more:
• Obtaining domestic and worldwide patent protection—why, when, and how
• Software patents—debunking the myth that software is not patentable; protecting mobile apps
• Contracts—addressing IP in agreements with employees, investors, and contractors
• Defensive IP strategies—protecting your trade secrets; risks of disclosing your inventions publicly; dealing with cease and desist letters
