New technologies are born at the edges where science meets art, design encapsulates data, and form and fashion interweave. These edges are the new frontiers that test the very limits of traditional intellectual property (IP) and contractual protection. But these edges also produce a cascade of new challenges and opportunities for development and adoption by society. We’ll examine the protection and agreements that assist with the commercialization of wearables, data, software, fashion, performance and culinary arts. Representatives from industries ranging from smart fabrics and food sciences to software and data will discuss the challenges of commercializing these technologies and the tools applied to the task.
