YEDI Speaker Series: Legal Panel 2019
On Thursday July 11th, 2019, YEDI hosted a Speaker Series: Legal Panel featuring two guests – Saba Samanian and Allan Oziel. As the Toronto Ambassador for Women of Wearables, Saba presented about a very timely and compelling topic – privacy in wearable technology. With wearables becoming increasingly popular, she is passionate about helping individuals understand the legal backend of the technologies, including personal rights in privacy protection. Allan, Trade-Mark Agent at Oziel Law, introduced the attendees to a very critical topic for tech-startups – software licensing. The audience learned about the key aspects of a proper licensing agreement, as well as the different options they have when deciding on a licensing structure. The event was attended by both YEDI alumni and community members eager to learn more about law in business and to meet like-minded entrepreneurs in the YEDI community.
