Patent Strategy for Startups
Startups often find themselves in a catch 22 position, of producing some of their best innovation at a time when they have the least financial resources to protect that innovation. This panel will be discussing some less obvious reasons why a startup may want to pursue a patent program, as well as tactics reducing short term expenditure while maximizing long term options for intellectual property protection. Other considerations applicable to startups, such as open source versus closed source code and intellectual property valuation, will also be discussed.
