27 Feb Day 15: IP Start-Up Guide with Fasken Martineau
This weeks Lunch N’ Learn was hosted by Fasken Martineau, a leading international business law and litigation firm.
The teams were presented an IP Start-Up Guide. Here’s a quick snapshot of Fasken Martineau’s three rules for creating value while avoiding disruption:
1. Own what you say you own
Clear assignment language in contracts
Clear waiver of moral rights language
2. Dissipate the fog (deal with what you do not control or are not yet aware of)
Understand your IP landscape
Patents, trade-marks, etc.
3. Keep your house in order
