In today's age, the technology offerings of many start-up companies involve developing apps. The 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 still-developing 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 these issues and more during the first installment of the firm's new NYC IP Start-Up Breakfast Series held in Wiggin and Dana's New York Office. Topics will include:

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

A light breakfast will be offered in addition to an opportunity to network with other industry professionals before and after the 30-minute program.
