Partner Jennifer Maisel ("Jen") will speak at a Fédération Internationale des Conseils en Propriété Intellectuelle's (FICPI) webinar on Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, from 9:30 am - 10:15 am ET. The webinar is part of FICPI's Focus 45 series.
In the session, Jen will discuss bitcoin and cryptocurrency with Louis-Pierre Gravelle, the Focus 45 Moderator. Bitcoin and the concept of decentralised cryptocurrency through peer-to-peer networks came into being in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis as a global social experiment akin to the early days of the world wide web. Today many cryptocurrencies have become household names, and are one of the most hotly debated financial assets. In the wake of the 2022 crypto crash and the loss of value of many cryptocurrencies, this webinar will explore how intellectual property protection is being used to secure additional value for blockchain networks, including branding through trademark protection, open source licensing, and patent protection over technical improvements to the network and innovative applications of blockchain technology.
The event is free for FICPI members.
