Wearable devices and related technology are electronics or computers incorporated into clothing and other accessories worn by people. Although smaller such wearable devices can perform the same computing tasks as mobile phones and laptop computers. However, some also incorporate sensors and scanners that can monitor, control, and provide tracking or bio-feedback of physiological activity. These devices are used in education, health, medicine, security, sports, gaming, and many other activities. Such devices include caps, contact lenses, headbands, jewelry, glasses, 'smart' fabrics, watches, and other paraphernalia.
Although wearable technology offers new capabilities, it lacks a genuinely evident need in the current market. It is possible that, like Bluetooth headsets, Google Glass, white Apple ear-buds, and Beats Bat-eared headphones, many of these small devices may not be worn by people, other than for health and fitness, once the fad wears off.
Irrespective of the technology, all such devices need intellectual property (IP) protection. Protection must be considered for registered appearance, operation, and branding. This includes the design, content, components, methods, functions, and patents and trademarks.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of notable technological and legal leaders and other seasoned professionals in this two-hour LIVE Webcast to offer the audience a noteworthy review and discussion of the Intellectual Property Protection of Wearable Technology in 2016 & Beyond. The panel of speakers also will provide the audience their insights and opinions on safeguarding the IP rights of wearable devices.
