Partner Steve Gold, chair of the firm's technology and outsourcing practice, addressed the PLI seminar "Understanding the Intellectual Property License
2011" in Chicago, November 3-4, 2011. Companies are increasingly turning to
licensing to gain access to intellectual property at a lower cost than
developing or purchasing intellectual property assets, and as a way of
generating new sources of revenue out of existing intellectual property assets.
This introductory course provided an overview of how to negotiate and draft
effective license agreements.
