LAW - 736A International Contract Law: Technology Licensing Agreements


(3-4 hrs.)

This course examines transactions granting the right to use intellectual property rights and their assignment in cross-border business dealings. The course will explore international law of international agreements in general, and then progress to the international and comparative law treatment of contracts relating to the exploitation or the transfer of intellectual property rights. Examples of brand-licensing and of authors’ copyright agreements will be given. The main focus will be a detailed analysis of the transfer of technology in patent licensing agreements and assignments of patents. The course gives ample attention to problems of strategy, valuation and negotiation. The last two classes are built around a negotiation exercise in which students create a mock licensing instrument.
