From crypto to IP, get on the fast track to learn and earn™


Future of Entrepreneurship

While others are leaving their valuable intellectual property exposed to infringement and valuable loss of revenue, you can learn the key strategies to help you identify, develop and leverage your key business assets: data and intellectual property. And you can even learn the step-by-step process of registering your copyrights and trademarks (and the difference!)

Future of Investing

And while everyone else is sitting on the sidelines believing cryptocurrency is just for drug dealers and money launderers (spoiler alert … it’s not), Bitcoin, first created in 2009 and trading in 2013 at only around $13.50 USD/coin, is now valued in the thousands. Find out why and learn the difference between a blockchain and Bitcoin. Learn how to safely and legally buy, hold, invest and trade cryptocurrency. And buy your first Bitcoin!

Future of Work

You don’t have time to waste in this fast-paced digital economy. And guess what? Employers don’t have the time to wait for you either. Companies like IBM, Google, Bank of America and EY now consider degrees “optional”. These business, finance and tech powerhouses are focused on your skill sets and demonstrated knowledge in specific areas. So is Advantage Evans™ Academy.

Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”

Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.

How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?

Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead

Dean Evans

Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.

Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.

Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!

Tech Intersect #82: Harold Hughes-Data & NFTs Driving The Future of The Fan Experience in a Web 3.0 World Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

In this episode of Tech Intersect, I chat with Harold Hughes, the founder & CEO of Bandwagon – a venture-backed identity infrastructure company that helps its customers transparently manage, aggregate, and store valuable consumer identity data. A rising star in data, identity, and experience space, Harold has had his brilliant vision and ideas validated as a graduate (and now mentor) of the Founder Institute Greenville chapter; graduate of Capital Factory – Austin, one of the inaugural companies in Google for the Startups Black Founders Exchange Program, and most recently the inaugural cohort of the IBM Blockchain Accelerator in 2019.  Harold Hughes is a graduate of Clemson University where he received Bachelor’s degrees in both Economics (B.A.) and Political Science (B.A.). As a “Triple Tiger”, he also completed his MBA at Clemson, before pursuing a graduate certificate in Innovation & Entrepreneurship at Stanford University. I invited him on today to talk about the future of the future of derivative rights, commercial rights with blockchain and NFTs on the scene. We’re both VERY bullish on the topic.

VIDEO: 203 Copyright Transfer Terminations: All Hype or Finally Ripe?

On Thursday, March 23rd I presented a Lunch & Learn at the University of New Hampshire School of Law’s Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property.

I covered 203 copyright transfer termination rights mechanics, the post-2013 response of copyright creators and copyright-industries when the first termination “window” opened for post-1977 transfers, and stakeholder and commentator forecasts about whether the anticipated termination tidal wave of destruction is more academic than real.

Copyright transfer termination permits a copyright creator to reclaim control of his or her copyright several decades after transferring the right. This applies to all copyright transfers no matter what a contract may say about a perpetual transfer. Creators cannot waive this right. But they can forfeit it if they are not careful.

In fact, some creators have already forfeited their rights if they transferred copyright in 1978 and failed to serve notice of termination by 2016. 

I offered some preliminary conclusions on the future of copyright-dependent industries in light of the 203 termination right.

Watch, listen and learn!
