Getting it Published: Protecting and Publishing Your Software Code, Data, AI/ML, and Innovations

Join Daniel Dardani, an intellectual property expert and Duke University's Director of Physical Sciences and Digital Innovations Licensing and Corporate Alliances, to learn how to strategically protect and publish programming code, data, and innovations on platforms, such as GitHub or data repositories, using open source licensing. In this workshop, he will discuss some popular open source software licenses, potentially ambiguous issues arising when patents and software are combined, and some questions researchers should consider before publishing their innovations and creative work.

Please feel free to submit any questions related to this topic when filling out the registration form.
