Protect Your Startup: IP Law Basics

SXSW Interactive Festival

11 a.m.-noon CDT

Gardere Attorneys Michael W. Dubner, Terrell R. Miller and Thomas Haskins, along with Ensite Solutions LLC President and CEO Toby Thomas, will be presenting on a panel at SXSW Interactive on March 14. Protecting your ideas, products and technology is crucial to ensuring a startup's success and obtaining high valuations from investors and acquirers. In the discussion titled "Protect Your Startup: IP Law Basics," panelists will explore intellectual property law basics, including technology ownership, patents, copyrights and trademarks. In addition, they will discuss ways to avoid common startup mistakes, as well as how (and when) to involve outside lawyers.

The panel discussion will be held in rooms 400-402 at the Hilton Austin Downtown. For more information about SXSW Interactive, including registration options, click here.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
