Protect The Internet

Feld Thoughts

Recently, two bills have been introduced into Congress that – if passed – will do irreparable damage to the Internet, entrepreneurship, free speech, and job creation as a result of the continued entrepreneurial activity around the Internet.

IP-Delivered TV: Are We There Yet?

Andrew Payne

I’ve always felt television, in the limit, will be delivered over IP. Specialized, proprietary cable TV distribution is gradually giving way to big, fast, cheap IP pipes. Of course, HTML5 & native apps will enable the long-awaited vision of “interactive TV” I’ve written about this before (going back years): One more step to IP-delivered television (2008). I’ve started watching Netflix’s new original show, House of Cards.

Lockdown Lost-Founder IP

The Startup Lawyer

Now if your startup received a $5MM Series A investment from a venture capital firm, how many developers (that you can recall) would come out of the shadows of the internet and claim to be your startup’s long lost founder? Thus, it’s wise to lock down your startup’s IP early to prevent the lost founder problem. How to Lock Down the IP.

The Internet is Ready for Things

Andrew Payne

I’m not a fan of the term “Internet of Things” (IoT), but it is the best way to describe a future where more and more devices are Internet-connected. The infrastructure elements already exist, as the Internet is exceptional at expanding and shifting to accommodate new kids on the block. 4G/LTE is a pipe for IP packets.

Are You An Internet Entrepreneur In Colorado? Oppose PIPA!

If you are a entrepreneur in Colorado who is working on something related to the Internet, please consider signing the following letter to Senator Udall and Senator Bennet opposing the Protect IP (PIPA) Act.

Letter to the Internet

Mark Birch

I say it’s a brave and poignant reminder that we can’t take the Internet for granted. The Internet has become an integral part of everyday life precisely because it has been an open-to-all land of opportunity where entrepreneurs, thinkers and innovators are free to try, fail and then try again. The Internet has changed the way we communicate with each other, the way we learn about the world and the way we conduct business. freedom Internet innovation tech SOPA PIPA

There’s an Internet Showdown Brewing

Andrew Payne

This scenario captures a core net neutrality concern: are we moving to an Internet where our access is determined more by business agendas and less by technical issues? Your next TV will likely be 4K with IP-delivered video. Even worse, most ISPs are fundamentally conflicted: IP-streaming video competes with their own proprietary video offerings. Back home in West Virginia, our Verizon phones have no 3G service.

Nuts & Bolts of Intellectual Property for New Startups

Gust

Having covered all the bases to ensure that your corporate name is available, the domain name can be acquired, and the name doesn’t infringe any existing trademarks (as we discussed last week ), now is a good time to look at the categories of intellectual property (IP) that are relevant to most startups. The gulf has widened with the proliferation of social Internet / user-generated content and mobile application startups. So you’ve chosen a name for your startup, product, or both.

Force of Good: a blog by Lance Weatherby
