Course Description

Intellectual Property Licensing

Intellectual property is the most valuable asset of many businesses. The value derives in substantial part from the ability to transfer limited rights to use copyrights, patents, trademarks and trade secrets. IP licenses define how those rights are shared and exploited, and consequently how participants in many industries collaborate and compete.

This course will investigate the drafting and application of intellectual property licenses, relying on several examples from the software industry. Throughout the course the class will discuss strategies for revising and simplifying license agreements to better address the changing business needs of IP rights holders and their licensees.

Intro to I.P. is a pre-required course.
