Back by popular demand! I have been asked to hold another IP Protection talk, as many couldn't make last Saturday's presentation. So this time, I will be speaking from 5-6 PM Thursday September 28 at Countway Library, Room503, Harvard Medical School. Speaking of getting things out of the talk, pizza will be provided. You get fed and you get to listen to me! The subject of the talk is Intellectual Property Protection for Startups. This is a complicated area. You have new technology, a complex body of law built up over a couple centuries, and often enormous financial considerations. My goal is to help you prioritize what is important. It will be about an hour talk (5-6 PM) plus time for questions. So if you are curious to learn more about the things you need to do to protect the key ideas of your business, by all means plan to attend. I am a US Patent Attorney. I have advised dozens of startups; including Americans, foreign Nationals. I was Chief Patent Counsel for a publicly traded Tier 1 Automotive Supplier with about $2.5 billion USD in sales, and was heavily involved with with some high profile patent disputes. In addition to be a patent attorney, I am also a limited partner in VC fund, investing in early stage tech startups. So I am familiar not just with the legal issues but also the kinds of things that VCs look for when investing in companies. I want to limit the audience to no more than 30, as my experience is that a smaller crowd and more informal setting is a good thing as it allows for good questions to be asked, and the audience gets more out of it. If you have specific questions you would like me to address during the talk, please respond to this post. Or you can just ask me there. Please sign up. I look forward to meeting you then and there!
