Legal Issues in Commercialization of Autonomous Vehicle Research and Technology with Gowling WLG
July 6 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Innovators have many things to turn their minds to when creating new technology, and legal matters can be expensive, confusing, and not as exciting as the primary business activities. But while legal issues may seem like an afterthought, getting them wrong can be devastating, and potentially fatal to a technology company.
This session identifies why having a plan to protect and create opportunities to commercialize technology is essential for innovators, particularly in the autonomous vehicle sector, and will outline legal issues that innovators face when commercializing these technologies, as well as the steps that can be taken to reduce risk and ensure the business is prepared for future growth.
If you are a researcher, innovator, partner, executive, or investor in a business developing new technology, come learn about the steps that you should be taking to protect your technology. While this session will focus on autonomous vehicle technology as a case- study, it is intended for audiences in other similarly innovative industries.
In this session, hear from Alex Ross, Sacha Babic, and Emily Dies, who will discuss:
– How to encourage innovation within your business and ensure innovative ideas are
– How to protect intellectual property rights and manage them as the business grows
– Corporate structures and strategies to protect your ability to commercialize technology.
