How is BlockChain changing the landscape of Intellectual Property Rights and how can UX/UI Designers/Startups benefit from it?

From Amazon’s One-click Purchase, Google’s Nest Home Digital Thermostat Swipe to Apple’s Multi-touch, many of our everyday interactions with digital designs today are the creations of User Experience (UX) Designers. However, most UX designers are not aware that their design/creations are intellectual properties (IP) that have monetary value. Such unique UX designs can be patented and is the reason why corporates acquires companies (like Google bought Nest and Motorola for their IP), as well as why investors decide to invest in a Startup that owns design/tech patents.

Swipe to Patent: Design Patents in the Age of User Interface:

This talk is to make aware UX Designers their role in creating patent value as well as educate Startups/ Corporations and even IP lawyers of an emerging category of design patents in User Experience/User Interface (UX/UI). In addition, the talk will be discussing about how new technologies like Blockchain is affecting intellectual property ownership. With decentralisation, the power is shifting to benefiting more of the creators of intellectual properties, which is happening in other creative industries such as musicians, photographers, artists etc. as well.
