Licensing is one of the hottest areas in intellectual property today. Many companies are analyzing and identifying their intellectual property assets to determine which they can license and how they can license them. A solid base of knowledge about licensing of intellectual property has never been more important for companies and their counsel. This course will give attendees an overview of how to negotiate and draft effective license agreements. Experts in licensing will discuss different kinds of licensing agreements, and the business and legal issues related to them.

Among the speakers will be Gregory J. Battersby, Grimes & Battersby, LLP; Gerard A. deBlasi, executive vice president, Licensing, IPVALUE Management, Inc.; Mavis K. Fowler-Williams, director of business affairs, CBS News; James E. Hopenfeld, Ropes & Gray; David M. Hudanish, Mayer Brown LLP; Leonard T. Nuara, Thacher Proffitt & Wood LLP; David Rabinowitz, Moses & Singer LLP; Edward H. Rosenthal, Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz, P.C.
