IP Transactions: Law and Practice
Drafting, negotiating, interpreting and advising on intellectual property (IP) agreements requires a special set of legal skills. In addition to understanding relevant provisions of IP law, practitioners need to be familiar with a wide range of commercial law subjects, including personal property, contracts, competition, insolvency, tax, employment, and various areas of regulation, such as data protection and export controls. To advise effectively on IP transactions, it is also necessary to be aware of commercial practice in the relevant industry sector.The mix of legal and practice issues that transactional IP lawyers face can be very different from those experienced by IP litigators or general company/commercial lawyers. Understandably, traditional IP law courses focus on a wide range of IP issues such as subsistence, validity, infringement and enforcement, and spend relatively little time on transactional aspects. Commercial law courses may use examples from the field of IP transactions, but tend not to focus exclusively on this area.
This course has been designed to focus on the legal and practice issues that are directly relevant to transactional IP practitioners.
