Learn how to protect your Intellectual Property in this free AHK webinar

15 May 2019, 08:55

AutoHotkey Webinar covering: 5 Secret Steps Pros Use to Identify & Protect Your IP on Tuesday, 05/21 @ 4 EST

I convinced my brilliant IP attorney, Steven Thrasher, to co-host a webinar giving away free advice and an NDA which he typically sells for nearly $1,000! Here is a link to the deck Stop people from stealing your stuff

And here are the links to the first hour and second hours. There were some real "gems" at the very end of the second hour!

You can download the deck here.

Join us next Tuesday, 05/21 @ 4 EST for a free overview of: 5 Secret Steps Pros Use to Identify & Protect Your IP

In the Webinar we will discuss:
1) Trademarks
  • Names/Slogans/Logos
  • When to file: File as soon as it’s being used
  • Takes one or two weeks to prepare and file, 9-18 months for Examination
  • Last for as long as you use it
2) Copyrights
  • Art/text/code/3-D/photos/videos
  • When to file: File as soon as it’s published
  • Takes about one week to prepare and file, 9-18 months for Examination
  • Last for 70 years from creator’s death, or 100 years for corporations
3) Patents
  • “Any” apparatus or process, recent “judicial exceptions” currently pending in Congress
  • When to file: File as soon as possible -- the US Is a First to Invent Country
  • Takes about one week to prepare and file provisional, about four weeks for a design, about 4-6 weeks for a utility application. Add 9-18 months for first Examination, double the time for correspondence and USPTO visits. Can expedite but $$$
  • Last for 20 years from date filed
4) Trade Secrets
  • “Any” information that gives a competitive advantage and is secret
  • When to file: no filing, but must be able to demonstrate “protected secret” (NDAs, locks, tracking, etc)
  • Takes diligence to set up and maintain program
  • Last as long as the information is secret and gives competitive advantage
5) Free NDA with instructions how to automate (valued at $995)

As always the second hour we will field questions on any AutoHotkey topic. Make sure you register for it and future webinars .

I cant tell you how often people on this forum post in the past asking about copyright and IP for an open source solution.

I greatly appreciate Joe Glines and his wonderful videos and tutorials!

Out of curiosity, isn't using lawyers for patents and copyright a little bit counter to the spirit of open source and Autohotkey?

Even if the language itself is open source, programs made in Autohotkey don't have to be.

So good to hear that tank is on the side of the righteous developer creating bespoke products... Sadly, the phrase "don't have to be" only applies philosophically because the community is ambivalent about protecting code... Keep in mind this all starts with enterprise customers who want THEIR IP protected... In so many ways AHK is an ideal solution; powerful, lightweight, flexible, and unbeknownst to the world at large; well supported with tons of quality developers... Sure we can take steps to protect code, but this simplistic attitude toward IP within the community is not considering that some practioners are building secure scaleable industrial strength solutions with AHK right now... Finally, love the idea behind Joe's upcoming IP webinar but no document or agreement can protect an ingenious piece of purpose built code that another party covets...

There's nothing prohibiting people from using AutoHotkey to make money. We just have to keep the source code open-source...
Joe, you are a treasure for the AHK community so what you say carries a lot of weight... May I trouble you to clarify which "source code" you are referring to:

1 - The AHK language source code
2 - My program that I myself wrote using the AHK language source code

I "assume" you are talking about # 1...

Not a challenge, but I trust you can see how the lack of specificity contributes to the current situation... Perhaps we should call the code written by the practitioner "Program Code" to differentiate...

Thoughts???

1 must remain opensource your developed script does not have to remain Open Source

This is wonderful, thank you. I've done some of my own research and this will surely flesh out my knowledge. :)
