Information

A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the June 2016 webcast, Intellectual Property and Information Technology Licensing for Transactional Attorneys.


Topics covered include:

  • A brief background tutorial on the IP rights at issue in a licensing transaction and general licensing strategy
  • Review of the key provisions, strategy objectives, and typical negotiation positions in the most popular forms of IP/IT licensing agreements and related contracts: software license agreements, application service provider/software-as-a-service agreements, cloud services agreements, and trademark licenses
  • Strategies for putting a party in the best position regarding its IP/IT license rights in the event that one of the parties to a licensing transaction later declares bankruptcy

Transactional attorneys increasingly face business deals that include the licensing of intellectual property (“IP”) or information technology (“IT”). To serve your client well it isn’t necessary that you be an IP/IT attorney, but it is crucial that you know what to look for and how to go about identifying and addressing the issues.

Collectively, the speakers have over 35 years of software and related intellectual property and information technology licensing experience. They will provide a brief background tutorial on the IP rights at issue in a licensing transaction and general licensing strategy. After that, they will review the key provisions, strategy objectives and typical negotiation positions in the most popular forms of IP/IT licensing agreements and related contracts: software license agreements, application service provider/software-as-a-service agreements, cloud services agreements, and trademark licenses. They will conclude the talk by addressing strategies for putting a party in the best position regarding its IP/IT license rights in the event that one of the parties to a licensing transaction later declares bankruptcy.
