IP Litigator Speaks on Blockchain Law During the World Economic Forum in Davos
IP litigation associate Marta Belcher (Silicon Valley) spoke on a panel about blockchain law at a World Economic Forum satellite event in Davos, Switzerland on Jan. 22.
The panel, titled “Borderless: Law and Order in a Decentralized World,” focused on the laws and the regulations surrounding cryptocurrencies and blockchain (distributed ledger) technology, including intellectual property issues. The panel was hosted by the Global Blockchain Business Council, which held events throughout the weeklong World Economic Forum that were attended by the CEOs of dozens of companies involved in blockchain technology and lawmakers worldwide.
Ms. Belcher also spoke about blockchain law on a panel during the 2018 World Economic Forum at CryptoHQ. She has been speaking about blockchain law around the world for more than three years, including in European Parliament, at the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development, and at the International Civil Society Center, and has been recognized for drafting the first blockchain-transferable software license by the Financial Times Innovative Lawyer awards.
