WHAT BUSINESS LAWYERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LICENSES, PART I AND PART II, 1 CLE hour
 

Virtually every client business engages in licensing.  A client may license out its inventions, technology or know-how – software, other form of technology or product or design – or it may license in the software, equipment technology or inventions of other companies.  Substantial value in many client companies consists in its licenses.  But licenses are complex contracts with mutually inter-dependent provisions related to the scope of use of the underlying property, variable royalties, ownership and adaptation of the underlying property, warranties and other forms of liability. This program will provide you with an intermediate-level guide to drafting and reviewing the most important provisions of licenses, including scope of use, property ownership and adaptation, royalties, warranties and indemnity, and remedies.
