About the Teleseminar

Most of the value of companies today is found in the technology – preeminently software – that they have either created or that others created and they use.  There is also substantial value in brands, the distinctive marks that give businesses market power.  Companies commercialize software and other technology and brands by out- or in-licensing what they have created or use, respectively. These technology and trademark licenses are among the most complex forms of contracting, with mutually inter-dependent provisions related to use and royalties, warranties and various forms of liability. This program will provide you with an intermediate-level discussion of the most important provisions of software and trademark licenses, including scope of use, royalties, warranties, indemnity, the limitation of liability, and remedies. 

Day 2 – October 2, 2013:

  • Remedies on breach – financial liability and specific performance
  • Indemnity – scope of obligation, exclusions, mechanics, remedies/triggers
  • Limits of liability – forms liability and failure of essential purpose
  • Risk management – diligence, insurance, escrow, force majeure
  • IP diligence – what to look for and red flags
