Tips to Protecting Your Ideas Before You Launch Your Software Start-Up Company

Written by on Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post

I receive a call nearly every day from an entrepreneur who has a great idea for a new software start-up company, and is concerned about how to protect that idea before he or she is able to launch it.

Unfortunately, for such entrepreneurs, there is no application that can be filed that can protect mere ideas. However, entrepreneurs should still take steps from the moment they first conceive the concept for their business to protect the intellectual property they develop. On the firm’s sister blog, The Silicon Valley IP Licensing Law Blog, I discussed what software entrepreneurs can do to protect their start-up ideas before they actually get them off the ground.
