February 9, 2021

Banner Witcoff’s Corporate IP Roundtable programs will host a Feb. 9 webinar to explore a variety of issues related to open source software.

Speakers will include Nicholas Georgiton, director and senior corporate counsel at Trustwave; and Colin Wright, senior in-house attorney, IP & Technology, at Landis+Gyr. Banner Witcoff attorney Ross Dannenberg will moderate.

The webinar will examine issues raised when using and incorporating open source software, as well as other factors companies should consider when it comes to employees contributing to open source software projects.
