Intellectual Property in a Virtual Reality World -- Patents and VR

  • Capital Factor 701 Brazos Street Austin, TX, 78701 United States (map)

For February, Austin Game Devs are pleased to welcome Stephen Mason, counsel with Dickinson Wright. Stephen is going to give us the latest on patents and virtual reality!

Stephen protects and monetizes the innovation of world-beating companies that started in garages, spare bedrooms, and coffee shops. Stephen has more than 15 years of experience representing before the USPTO many of the market-leading technology companies in America.

As one of the few patent attorneys in Austin with full-time experience inside an early-stage technology startup, a significant portion of his practice is focused on early stage portfolio development (e.g., analyzing business plans and assisting in initial protection of critical assets), particularly using accelerated examination. His core skills include identifying the intellectual property that creates market value and using a deep knowledge of patent prosecution to secure assets.
