Patent consultant Karolis Šileika is participating in the European Patent Office (EPO) conference “Patenting Blockchain” which takes place in Hague, Netherlands.

One of major questions that is discussed today in EPO conference “Patenting Blockchain” is where does the technology stand with relation to IP protection and patenting in particular. It is yet to be seen whether patenting blockchain will not eventually be seen as an oxymoron.
