Intellectual Property, Software, and Information Licensing: Law and PracticeLicensing laws are constantly created and revised to keep pace with developer and user needs. One source will keep you up-to-date with the information and tools you’ll need to stay on top of the latest cases related to IP licensing. 

Intellectual Property, Software, and Information Licensing: Law and Practice is a comprehensive resource and accompanying CD-ROM covering all the information and tools you need to develop comprehensive licensing agreements, rectify existing problems, maximize returns within the legal boundaries, anticipate new concerns, and avoid potential pitfalls. Unlike other licensing treatises — that focus on either license drafting or on the theory of license agreements — this valuable resource draws from the authors’ wealth of professional expertise to develop a theoretical and practical balance.

Take a look at some of the timely topics you’ll find covered in Intellectual Property, Software, and Information Licensing: Law and Practice:

  • Objectives and Underlying Law of Common License Provisions
  • License Drafting: Approaches, Strategies, Samples, and Best Practices
  • Patent Licensing, Trade Secret Licensing, Copyright Licensing, Software Licensing, Multimedia Licensing, and Information Licensing
  • Licensing the Right of Publicity
  • Government Contracts and Intellectual Property Licensing
  • Antitrust Issues in Intellectual Property Licensing
  • Bankruptcy Issues in Intellectual Property Licensing
  • Taxation Issues in Intellectual Property Licensing

New in the 2017 Cumulative Supplement:

  • The Supreme Court held in Impression Product v. Lexmark that patent exhaustion applies at the moment of sale even when the sale is subject to contractual restriction; the decision alters how patent holder can impose restrictions in post-sale patented products in the U.S. and abroad
  • The Federal Circuit ruled that the assignment of intent-to-use trademark application prior to the filing of a Statement of Use constituted an improper assignment prohibited under Section 1060(a)(1) of the Lanham Act
  • The Ninth Circuit determined that if the licensor has never consented to the assignment of the trademark license agreement, the purported assignment is invalid
  • The Federal Circuit allowed standing in Luminara World Wide v. Liown Electronicswhere the licensee had all the exclusive rights to the asserted patents and the licensor retained some licensing rights; and much more
