|Pre/Anti-requisites||Anti-requisite: LAW 6758 - Intellectual Property Transactions|
The value of intellectual property is not only in its use by the owner itself but also in the ability to exploit that property with others. Intellectual property is at the core of many commercial transactions. International licensing and technology transfers have become a highly important means of commercialization or exploitation for intellectual property owners. This course considers licensing and other contractual arrangements for conveying and sharing intellectual property rights including special issues in respect of open source licenses. It examines issues of valuation of intellectual property, intellectual property in insolvency as well as due diligence in business acquisition transactions. Special issues of acquiring intellectual property rights from government laboratories or Universities are examined as are issues involved in the termination of license relationships. The legal considerations and key contractual issues are viewed in an international and domestic context.
