NYC Bar Seminar Will Review Trademark, Copyright Licensing

Tuesday, January 1, 2008 - 00:00

The New York City Bar Association is offering a video replay of a CLE seminar titled Key Issues in Trademark and Copyright Licensing.

The program will take place on Wednesday, January 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street, New York City.

This program will follow the negotiation of a hypothetical license agreement from the initial negotiation through dispute resolution. The panel will discuss: the goals of a licensing agreement and how they may differ depending on the degree of maturity of the brand, the pros and cons of different types of licenses, the divisibility of copyrights, types of compensation arrangements, grants of rights for both traditional and new media, protection of trademarks through quality control provisions, whether licensed rights are or should be assignable, international licensing issues, and enforcement and alternative dispute resolution. The program chair is Claudia Ray, O'Melveny & Myers LLP.
