Follow up question: how do you protect IP when disclosing how the technology works during funding competitions to get your start up seeded? Presumably judging panels need to know details in order to judge effectively

@Chris: POSSIBLE CONTINUING APPLICATION(S) at USPTO: before payment of final feeContinuation ApplicationYou may wish to file a continuation application for several different reasons. One reason would be toattempt to obtain broader claims than those currently allowed. Another reason would be to maintain anapplication pending at the United States Patent and Trademark Office for various strategic reasons.Divisional ApplicationThis type of application is filed in order to pursue non-elected claims stemming from a restrictionrequirement during prosecution.Continuation-In-Part (CIP)If you have any improvements to this invention that you wish to protect, it may be desirable to file a CIPapplication for such improvements prior to issuance of the present application.

Hi Jim, how should companies approach IP realms with heavy saturation? For example, genetic transformation of plants. Any recommendations how to navigate these markets to avoid any legal hurdles/issues with infringement?

Omar ' Who can apply for registration?In order to be entitled to registration of a trademark, an applicant must be a "person". A "person" may be an individual, partnership, trade union, association, joint venture, or corporation. An applicant can include two or more persons, for example “John Doe, Jane Smith”.'

Can you comment further on cross-licensing?
Nick Fylstra
01:06:23
For instance I am interested in using some IP generated by my group that has already been exclusively licensed to another company. That company is much larger now and I don't know what their motivation would be to sub- or cross-license to us
