These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

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.

Day I – August 30:

  • Drafting and reviewing the most important provisions of client licenses
  • Defining the scope of the license – usage, territory, time and updates
  • Royalties – different structures and audits
  • Warranties in licensing – implied and express
  • Protecting the exchange of confidential information – employee issues and trade secrets

Day II – August 31:

  • Remedies on breach – financial liability and specific performance
  • Indemnity – scope of obligation, exclusions, mechanics, remedies/triggers
  • Limitation of liability – forms liability and failure of essential purpose
