Aims and objectives

This course highlights principal differences between the European law system and the US 'common' law systems and explains main 'tricks' and 'traps' to be taken into account by European practitioners when drafting license contracts. The course will focus on drafting and negotiating advice for EU practitioners, with precise references to existing US law. The course lays the groundwork for a clause by clause examination of all significant elements of a patent licensing agreement. Focus is on how and why each provision serves the business needs of the parties while remaining legally viable.
Who should attend
Do you work as a corporate IP/patent/legal counsel or professional or as a patent attorney/attorney-at-law in private practice and deal with licensing issues? Then this course is designed for you. Knowledge of IP law is required.
