In today's age, the technology offerings of many start-up companies involve developing apps. These start-ups need to know what types of intellectual property they should be pursuing for apps, and how they should go about doing so. One of the most complex and evolving issues in U.S. patent law today is whether, and the extent to which, software and algorithms can be patented.

Wiggin and Dana's Intellectual Property Partner Michael Kasdan will address this topic in his presentation  at Wiggin and Dana's Philadelphia Office. Topics will include:

  • What should be considered when seeking patent protection for your app?
  • If a patent isn't the best way to go, what else should entrepreneurs keep in mind when looking to lock down their intellectual property?
  • What do companies need to think about in terms of data protection and privacy for their apps?
