Dykema at SXSW 2017

March 10, 2017

Several Dykema attorneys are preparing to attend South by Southwest (SXSW), an annual event focusing on interactive media, film and music, in the following week. The event takes place in Austin, Texas, each March. Van Lindberg, San Antonio-based senior counsel in Dykema’s Intellectual Property group, is serving on a SXSW Interactive panel titled “Open Source in a Restricted & Regulated Environment,” which takes place Saturday, March 11. The panel will discuss the risks and rewards of open source in regulated or restricted environments, as well as the uncertainties that may scare organizations away from open source, and how to overcome them. Panelists will also discuss the process and procedure around the use (or intake) of open source software, contributions back to external open source projects, and launching of new open source projects.

Dykema is also co-sponsoring the private “FinTech Luminares VIP Event” taking place on the evening of March 11. Invitations to the event are limited to leaders within the financial services and FinTech community. Lindberg, along with Austin-based attorneys Erin Fonté,  leader of Dykema’s FinTech, Payments and Digital Commerce group and leader of the Firm’s Financial Services Regulatory and Compliance Group, and Jesse Moore, will be in attendance at the event.
