Legal Bytes is proud to announce Marc Kaufman, Partner at Rimon, P.C., is moderating and participating in a panel discussion about the risks and rewards of blockchain technology. Currently, there are over 30,000 patent families worldwide directed specifically to blockchain technologies.
As a consequence and despite the broad use of open source software in blockchain ecosystems, patents present a significant risk to blockchain innovators and their investors. However, there are various patent communities which can reduce the risk of excessive patent litigation for blockchain projects.
This panel will discuss the tapestry of patent communities available to blockchain innovators and how each community balances the rights of patent owners with the need for freedom to operate within the blockchain community.
Perianne Boring, President and Founder of the Chamber of Digital Commerce will be introducing the panel, and in addition to Marc Kaufman as moderator, panelists will include, William Geary of MPEG-LA, Ken Seddon of LOT Network, Jed Grant of the Open Crypto Alliance and Matthew Poppe also a partner at Rimon.
If you are interested in registering, there will be two sessions one on March 22, 2021 and another on March 24, 2021. You can find out more and register at Live Webinar: Avoiding Risk and Fostering Innovation with Blockchain Patent Communities. Of course, if you need more information, you can contact Marc Kaufman directly.
