Hey everyone, if you're at GDC 2010, I will be speaking at the following two sessions:

Video Game IP - What You Need to Know NOW
Speaker: Ross Dannenberg (Partner, Banner & Witcoff, Ltd)
Date/Time: Thursday (March 11, 2010) 9:00am — 10:00am
Location (room): Room 130, North Hall
Track: Business and Management
Format: 60-minute Lecture
Experience Level: All

Session Description
Intellectual property can be a powerful asset for any company, young or old. Trademarks protect your brand; copyrights protect your content; and patents can be used to broadly protect your ideas, while company critical information can be safeguarded as a trade secret. However, companies must perform certain actions in order to enforce their IP, because some forms of IP require that certain steps are taken at specific times or a company might inadvertently dedicate its IP assets to the public. Don't let this happen to you! This seminar will discuss what you need to know NOW to protect your intellectual property, and will discuss proactive steps you can take to ensure that you maximize your intellectual property rights in your video game and software.

Intended Audience
Any video game developer interested in IP. However, the seminar will concentrate on proactive steps that smaller companies can take so they can effectively compete with the big boys in the intellectual property arena.

Takeaway
Steps companies (and individuals) can take to ensure that they don't inadvertently give away their intellectual property or dedicate their intellectual property to the public domain.

Speaker Evaluations None available.
