From artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and cryptocurrency, the rapid evolution of technology shows no sign of slowing down. Companies in the digital technology sector are among the world’s most highly valued companies, with good reason. And businesses in every sector now use digital technology in all kinds of ways, from basic email to sophisticated data analytics.

Companies in the uncrewed technology space are in a unique position to capitalize on the value inherent in the vast quantities of data, including video, collected and captured during the course of operations. And for uncrewed tech companies to thrive, they must understand how to properly obtain, store, and potentially distribute that data to maximize its value while working within the framework of existing legal protections and constraints. This program will teach attendees the key issues to consider in terms of protecting and deriving value from drone data, licensing that data, and maintaining compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Presenters Derek Stettner and Plymouth Nelson will provide a straightforward overview of the legal mechanisms for protecting data, and share examples of agreements and deal structures for data collection, sharing, and use in developing, among other things, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics.
Plymouth is known for his attention to detail and unflagging commitment to his clients’ business goals. He approaches each project with the mindset of a business partner to expand the IP value of the product or product line while also closely working with engineers and staff to understand the nuts and bolts of the client’s technology. These qualities make him particularly successful in drafting and prosecuting patent applications directed to such items as compressors, pumps, electric motors, agricultural equipment, automotive fuel, and more.
Derek brings more than 20 years of experience to his work in patent prosecution, portfolio management, intellectual property due diligence, and technology transfer and licensing matters. His strong track record of successful outcomes, coupled with his technical training as an electrical engineer, give Derek a unique perspective on the challenges facing in-house legal departments and technological innovators in a broad range of industries.
