Licensing intellectual property can be a practical and efficient strategy for companies looking to expand into a new market, enhance an existing product line, reduce costs or accomplish other business goals. The IP under consideration to license could be a patent, copyright, trademark, software or any combination of them all. IP licensing is a practice that is increasingly common across industries and as the need for businesses to leverage IP continues knowing how to navigate and negotiate an IP license will remain a helpful skill that counsel representing the licensing parties must understand and develop.
This introductory course will give attendees a comprehensive review of the basic elements in designing licensing agreements for a variety of IP types. Our faculty will discuss the rationale for choosing licensing over other business options in a given context and explain key provisions and specific considerations when negotiating an IP license, along with special circumstances that may arise, such as any regulatory concerns, antitrust issues and also when negotiating an international IP license.
Stephen Rosenfeld, Member, McDonald Hopkins, will speak at this program.
