New Legal Blog Aims To Help Startups Avoid IP Missteps

Last week we brought you our curated and organic List of Legal Resources For Startups and Entrepreneurs which includes blogs, online legal tools, articles and tips from venture capitalists. Just recently, Jill Hubbard Bowman’s brand new blog IP Law For Startups, an excellent new source for startups, was added to the list of blogs.

Bowman’s knowledge of intellectual property law and startups comes from her 8 years of experience at both Silicon Valley-based firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, and IP firm Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione in Chicago. She resides now in Austin, Texas, one of the nation’s top booming startup cities, where she currently owns her own law practice.

While other blogs focus on general legal tips, Bowman’s new blog will be a deep dive into the nitty gritty of intellectual property law – a subject Bowman says is one of the most dangerous for startups.

“If your most valuable assets are based on intellectual capital – like most software and technology companies -mapping the IP law landscape is critical for your success,” writes Bowman on her blog.

Jason Mendelson, Foundry Group co-founder and a former college classmate of Bowman’s, says that Bowman promises to spill the beans on some of the worst IP disasters, as well as “expose how some big firms are ripping off their clients.” Keep an eye out for some interesting posts and for now, read Bowman’s debut post on Ten Great Reasons to Learn about IP Law, or for a crash course, download her free 28-page Ebook of frequently asked IP law questions.
