Parody or Parable? A Legal Perspective on Silicon Valley –


Wednesday, July 15, 2015 – Silicon Valley

5:30–7:30 pm

Thursday, July 16, 2015
San Francisco
5:30–7:30 pm

Parody or parable? Join us and a panel of distinguished guests from some of the Bay Area’s most exciting start-ups and tech companies to discuss real legal trouble for the fictional start-up in HBO's Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley is a place where dreams often become reality. But, as HBO's fictional version shows, it’s also a graveyard for companies with great technologies and disruptive ideas that get into fatal legal problems early on. Don't make the same mistakes as the characters on the show, but rather come learn from us some common pitfalls to avoid.
