With intellectual property increasingly becoming the impetus for deals, it is strategically important to understand what intellectual property is being transferred and the risks involved. This program, led by attorney Keren Livneh, will break intellectual property down into its component parts, discuss the issues inherent in transacting with each such part, review transaction structures for transferring and commercializing intellectual property, discuss the issues that arise from such structures, and help navigate those issues with practical drafting considerations and best practices.

  2. Identify the issues involved in transacting with the various types of intellectual property
  3. Review possible structures for transferring intellectual property

One of the best Lawline presentations. Effective, both as to manner of presentation and subject manner coverage.
