Tim Hwang tells us that there will be a legal hackathon focusing on trademark technology, on 20-21 January 2013, in Mountain View, California, USA, sponsored by AttorneyFee.
The Twitter hashtag for the event is #TMHacks
Here is a description of the event:
AttorneyFee is holding its first hackathon ever, and we want you to join us! The event will kick off at 10:00 AM on January 20th and go till the next day at 5:00 PM. Copious amounts of caffeine, pizza, and beer will be provided. Come with a team, or come on your own and join a team. Come with an idea to work on, or join our ideation session in the morning to develop an idea. At the conclusion of the event each team will present their project, and the coolest project will win some swag.
The focus of the hackathon will be trademarks. Why trademarks, you ask? We recently finished building three super valuable APIs for trademarks that we hope will enable more open innovation in the space: (i) the AF TM applications API, (ii) the AF TM attorneys API, and (iii) the AF TM logos API. Together, these three APIs should enable devs to build a slew of cool new apps to disrupt the trademark industry. [...]
