This webinar examines the key issues involving protecting intellectual property in bankruptcy proceedings.
Intellectual property generally includes patent rights, copyright rights, trademark and servicemark rights, and trade secrets. The foundation of intellectual property law is the protection of exclusive rights afforded to original works and invention. These rights can be significantly impacted by bankruptcy proceedings. This webinar examines some of these key issues including the perfection of security interests in intellectual property, the protection of certain intellectual property licenses and lack of protection for other types of intellectual property, the relief available to licensors, as well as special issues regarding assignment of licenses in bankruptcy proceedings.
