Drafting and Negotiating IP Licensing Agreements
This course is designed to introduce participants to the legal and business considerations involved in creating licensing agreements for various intellectual property rights, including trademarks, copyright, trade secrets, and patents. The course will cover topics such as exclusive and non-exclusive licenses, limitations on and transfer of rights, and infringement.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Articulate the legal principles and practical considerations involved in licensing trademarks, patents, copyrights, and trade secrets from the perspective of the licensor and licensee;
- Review and draft key terms in a licensing agreement that protect the interests of both the licensor and the licensee;
- Advise clients on the practical implications of standard license provisions on ownership, transfer, and use of the licensed intellectual property; and
- Identify applicable laws, regulations, and filing requirements for licensing intellectual property.
Participants will be asked to review and propose revisions to a trademark licensing agreement based on a set of facts relating to a hypothetical client’s goals and concerns. They will be asked to focus on a set of specific concerns and identify and explain for each: (1) the relevant provision(s); (2) any revisions, deletions, or additions the participant would make to the identified provisions; (3) any additional information needed to fully respond; and (4) any other conforming edits or additional documents needed to ensure the client is adequately protected.
