Intellectual Property Law for Startups // BUSINESS 273
Sarah Feingold, General Counsel, Etsy
Tuesday, August 16th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.
Think of the Internet as a moshpit, a collection of priceless intellectual property. Now think of your startup, a supremely valuable but less chaotic hub of ideas, designs, text, methods, agreements, secrets and more. This course starts with the basics of copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents and contracts. It will then examine what aspects of a business can and cannot be protected, how to police these assets, how to use other people’s intellectual property and how to decipher your next move when that dreaded lawyer letter arrives.
Born an artist, Sarah Feingold decided that the best way to to protect creative folk like herself was to go to law school. She currently serves as general counsel of Etsy, Inc. (etsy.com) and specializes in intellectual property, business and ecommerce law. When she’s not practicing law, she's writing about legal issues (Sarah penned the ebook “Copyright for Artists”) or hammering silver in her tiny Brooklyn apartment kitchen.
