Webinar#10: IP protection in software development
When: 25 November 2020 | 10:00 CET
Current innovation relies increasingly upon digital technology, and software development lies at the heart of it, whether in pure form as seen with blockchain and AI applications, or paired with physical devices like IoT sensors, medical devices, drones, robots and more.
This webinar presents and explains Intellectual Property (IP) rights with relevance to software innovation, in particular:
- copyright; as it relates to code and other aspects of a software product
- patents; which may be sought for technical effects brought about by new software algorithms and solutions
- registered designs; to protect new and commercially-relevant visual aspects of user interfaces, and
- trade secrets; that can attach to data sets, coding techniques and other proprietary aspects of software development.
