Event Description:

If you are an entrepreneur (or organizing a Startup) in the field of IT or Biomedicine, you have quite a few legal questions to which you would like to get answers. For this purpose we are organizing an open forum for discussion, which will feature presentations by experts in intellectual property law. Speakers will include practicing lawyers, patent attorneys and technical experts from different jurisdictions, including Russia, the EU and the USA,  which will help to examine different aspects of each issue to find the right way to resolve it. In short, the main idea of the event is an open dialogue between law and business, between ideas and their protection.                                

Issues to be covered:

- Registration of rights to development (contracts with employees, freelancers and contractors);                                

- Brand protection (trademark registration, brand name, domain disputes);

- Protection software (strategy, main risks, the patenting of algorithms and interface);                                

- Protection of innovations in the field of Biotechnology (Biomed)

- Foreign patenting
