Licensing of intellectual property assets has become a multi-billion dollar business annually, and many of the largest technology companies derive a significant portion of their revenue from licensing income. This course will provide an introduction to the licensing of intellectual property and negotiation of related agreements. Topics covered will include IP fundamentals, the foundations of IP licensing, licensing strategies, drafting, negotiation and enforcement. The course will include a mix of lecture and interactive workshops. No prior experience with intellectual property is strictly required, although students are strongly encouraged to take one or more IP courses either prior to enrolling or concurrently with the class. A technical background is not required.
