Blockchain is an online distributed ledger that can be used to record and track transactions and store data in a transparent and unalterable way. It is a foundational technology with the potential to underpin new ways of connecting and recording information across all areas of technology.

Join our panel of experts as they lay out the blockchain patent landscape and discuss the issues around blockchain patenting and the potential impact on different technology areas, including the patent system itself. Key questions that will be answered:

  • Why all the hype around blockchain?
  • What is actually patentable?
  • What areas are being actively protected with patents?
  • Will blockchain have an impact on the patent system?
