Intellectual Property Management for Start-up Companies
Sep 3, 2010
Goodsill lawyer, Martin Loui, a member of the HSBA’s Intellectual Property and Technology Law Section, will be teaching “Intellectual Property Management for Start-up Companies,” one course in Kapiolani Community College’s twelve-week management series on intellectual property (IP) designed for business owners and leaders and for general practitioners who counsel such businesses managers. The series begins in September. Mr. Loui’s course is on November 11, 2010. Course attendees will learn the importance of managing IP assets. This includes identifying IP issues that should be on the radar for spinoffs, emerging technologies and start-up businesses, and steps that these new companies should undertake to manage and protect IP, including when to hire expert IP practitioners. In addition, the course will address the IP management issues that new companies face, including securing IP rights, assuring investors that the value of the IP is maintained or enhanced through various protection strategies, integrating the IP portfolio to cover the technology and business development goals, and establishing inhouse procedures and policies to manage and protect the businesses’ IP.

Mr. Loui’s practice covers a broad range of IP law, from patents to trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets and domain names, with an emphasis on the strategic development of IP portfolios for the protection, leverage, and monetization (licensing or divestiture) of technology assets for pre-IPO and publicly-traded businesses.
