Join us for Session 3 of a three-part program designed to assist principals of early-stage companies in establishing solid foundations for their entrepreneurial ventures. Each program will be delivered by a panel of attorneys with extensive experience in both the subject matter of the series and the operations and concerns of startups and emerging growth companies. These interactive sessions will be equally valuable for principals of existing companies and those intending to start companies.

In this session, we will discuss issues related to:

  • The fundamentals of copyright, trademark, patent and other forms of intellectual property (IP) protection
  • Securing IP rights from founders, employees, consultants and vendors
  • Common IP issues related to software and user generated content
  • Protecting your IP from infringement.
  • Avoid infringement of third party IP

Doors open at 6 PM for networking and discussion starts at 6:20 PM.
