Understanding the Intellectual Property License 2010
In both good times and bad, licensing offers valuable economic and strategic opportunities. Companies are increasingly turning to licensing to gain access to intellectual property at a lower cost than developing or purchasing intellectual property assets, and as a way of generating new sources of revenue out of existing intellectual property assets. Virtually every business today must confront licensing issues and a solid base of knowledge about licensing of intellectual property has never been more important for companies and their counsel. This introductory course will give you an overview of how to negotiate and draft effective license agreements, whether you are the licensor or licensee. Experts in licensing will discuss different kinds of licensing agreements, and the business and legal issues related to them.
