TEDCO Event: Navigating The Fascinating Legal World Of IP Strategy
- This event has passed.
The legal landscape can be one of the most difficult territories for any company to navigate. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to managing your intangible assets, your Intellectual Property (IP). For many tech companies, their IP is more valuable than anything else the company holds.
Even though IP can be so crucial, companies of all maturity levels struggle to properly oversee their IP strategies. What’s better, a patent or a trade secret? Should we monetize our patents? When should we pursue trademarks? How do I copyright my source code? Is open source the way to go? So many questions…
Bottom line, the sooner a company starts thinking about and understanding what its IP is, how to protect it, and where it fits into the company’s strategic future, the better. Indeed, a thoughtful IP scheme can be instrumental in competing against larger incumbents and in securing venture capital.
On May 22nd we welcome two IP attorneys from the International Law firm Goodwin LLP, PJ McCarthy and Marty Gomez. They’re excited to discuss all this and more.
