Software invention disclosures have been on the rise and not just from the computer science departments. Music, Sociology, Geography, Linguistics and others not traditionally associated with technology commercialization are contributing. This session will tackle the trends in intellectual property protection as well as successful and failed business models of commercializing software, including software valuation, the wide variety of licenses, and best models for particular situations. Learn about different pricing structures and software distribution models. Know the pitfalls and license language to avoid. There will be plenty of time for questions and sharing of issues and creative solutions to common challenges encountered with today’s software licenses.
