Did you know that in 1998 when Google was just a startup, it got its seminal PageRank patent No. 6,285,999? Even before it had a business plan, venture funding, or even a domain name — and then paid Stanford University, to which it had been assigned the patent, $336 million in shares to exclusively license it. Analysts say that without the patent, Google would have been run over by copycat search engine offerings from Yahoo, Microsoft, and other big players in the market at that time!
Well, your startup might not be the next google but it is very important to think about protecting your work. As the law is complex, it is very likely that you would have lots of questions in mind. Why are patents so important? What does this mean for your business? What is the importance of branding and brand identification? Find answers to all questions related to patenting and intellectual property at this interesting programme organized by Malopolska Government this Friday, December 6th.
The programme will focus on new technologies! Everyone is welcomed to attend – especially entrepreneurs and scientists who plan to commercialize their researches
