The Importance of Patents: Interview with Nick Petrella, Head of Legal

Oct 18, 2021 by David Morgenthaler

 

 

In honor of Armory’s recent acquisition of a patent for continuous software deployment, we sat down with Nick Petrella, Head of Legal, for a casual conversation covering a wide range of subjects, from patent law to Nick’s background as a software engineer and why he made the leap to the law. Check out the video below to learn more about:

  • why patents are important
  • where and how long patents protect a company’s IP
  • when securing a patent might not be the best move
  • the way that many software engineers underestimate the value or uniqueness of their work,
  • and more!

Enjoy and see you in the next one!
