  • (1888PressRelease) March 14, 2018 - Event Synopsis:
    One of the most effective ways for innovators to be rewarded is through Intellectual Property (IP) licensing. However, IP and antitrust laws limit the licensing practices by ensuring that IP owners do not gain unlawful advantage over their competitors or consumers. Moreover, the interaction between antitrust laws and IP has often created pitfalls for companies involved in IP licensing. Antitrust laws can negate certain clauses or even an entire licensing agreement, and undertakings will always have the risk of being fined for any antitrust violation.

    It is, therefore, critical that relevant antitrust laws are taken into consideration when negotiating and drafting IP licensing agreements.

    Our panel of key thought leaders and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge
    Group will offer an in-depth discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates regarding the latest and significant issues surrounding the intersection of IP Licensing and Antitrust Law. This LIVE Webcast aims to help you avoid common pitfalls and risk issues that may arise during IP licensing negotiations.

    - IP Licensing and the U.S. Antitrust Law – Overview
