Your Intellectual Property Has Been Stolen - Now What? How the Semiconductor Industry Can Combat this Global Problem
Moderator:
Ted Miracco - SmartFlow Compliance Solutions, CA
Organizer:
Ted Miracco - SmartFlow Compliance Solutions, CA
This panel will explore IP theft and how the Semiconductor and EDA industries can come together and move forward to combat this growing problem. Highly technical intellectual property (IP), including everything from soft and hard IP cores to electronic design automation (EDA) software used in military and defense applications, is being stolen. Ted Miracco is the co-founder of SmartFlow Compliance Solutions, a leading cyber-security and anti-piracy company he started after a long battle against copyright and IP theft of EDA tools. Ted, Warren Savage, Kurt Shuler, Rob Ballow and Liz Ruetsch bring a wealth of experience in dealing with the misappropriation of semiconductor IP and use of counterfeit licenses to EDA software. David Locke Hall brings a government perspective on what the government is, or is not, doing to help companies combat software piracy. The panel will also discuss the damage that is being done by this sustained threat to fair market competition, the U.S. and world economies, and private and public security.

Panelists:
Warren Savage - Silvaco, Inc., Santa Clara, CA
Kurt Shuler - Arteris, Inc., Campbell, CA
