About the Authors
  • Intellectual property transactions underlie large segments of the global economy, from pharmaceuticals to computing, entertainment to digital content. This first-of-its-kind resource combines practical contract drafting and negotiation skills with substantive legal doctrine in the rapidly growing area of intellectual property transactions and licensing. Though primarily designed for classroom use, it is also a must-have legal reference work for every lawyer involved in the technology, biopharma, entertainment, media or financial services industries. It includes practical drafting models and explanations of key contractual provisions such as field of use, exclusivity, milestones, royalties, termination, indemnification and liability, and combines these with discussion of the latest cases interpreting these provisions. Numerous legal doctrines that affect the enforcement of IP agreements are also covered. An instructor's manual for this book is currently being developed. If you are interested in receiving updates about the availability of this resource, please contact the author directly. This book is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

    • In-depth coverage of individual license components such as field of use, royalties, termination
    • Each chapter contains discussion questions and exercises for students
    • Available as Open Access on Cambridge Core
