Fund and Done: Avoiding IP Risks in Crowdfunding Campaigns

Today, I posted on the Washington Lawyers for the Arts Blog about domestic and cross-border IP risks in crowdfunding campaigning. Particularly, I discussed how a US biotech company’s recent Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign was derailed by a trademark dispute and what crowdfunding campaigners can do to protect themselves against domestic and foreign IP risks. The posting is available here. Enjoy!

 

Interested in Crowdfunding?

For those who are interested in IP and other legal issues surrounding crowdfunding, I will be speaking on a panel at the Washington Lawyers for the Arts and Seattle University of School of Law‘s seminar entitled Crowdfunding 101: Funding Your Passion on September 19, 2014. Particularly, I will be presenting on the legal obligations and risks fundraising campaigners sign onto through the terms of use on major crowdfunding platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe. Further information on attending the seminar can be found here.

Hope you can make it. It should be fun!
