Description

Blockchain, the technology at the heart of bitcoin and other virtual currencies, can record transactions between two parties efficiently and without the need for an intermediary. This opens up many possible uses, some of which may have a significant impact for trademarks and IP. Please join our speaker, Birgit Clark of Baker McKenzie for this important webinar exploring what you need to know about this emerging technology.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe what is meant by the term “blockchain”
  • Understand some of the potential applications of blockchain
  • Identify ways in which blockchain could change the laws for trademarks and IP.
