Fusion Coursework  

IP Licensing (2cr)

The course will explore the different types of legal issues related with the disclosures and transfers of intellectual property assets to third parties while at the same time protecting the owner’s interests in these assets. The course will focus on the contractual relationships to protect the disclosures of know-how under trade secret law as well as technology under patent, trademark, and copyright law. Various types of licenses and agreements will be discussed, negotiated, and drafted, including a confidentiality agreement, a material transfer agreement, and an IP license agreement that will cover know-how, patents, and a joint development agreement.
