This free One-Hour Briefing will give attorneys and law librarians a better understanding of the fundamental legal issues associated with technology licensing in the high technology and biotechnology industries; and will illustrate some key legal research issues and techniques that arise during these complex technology licensing transactions.
Our first speaker, Frank X. Curci, a West Coast-based technology attorney representing entities in both the high technology and biotechnology industries, will address some of the key issues that technology licensing attorneys need to consider as they prepare and negotiate patent and other high technology and biotechnology license agreements. Our second speaker, Hope Porter, a head law librarian from an intellectual property law firm, will discuss fundamental research strategies and databases guidelines which support and augment a technology licensing practice.
Join our speakers as they:
- Highlight some of the major competing interests of licensors compared to licensees
- Identify some of the key legal research tools available to technology licensing attorneys
- Demonstrate the resources a law librarian can access to assist in drafting and monitoring a technology license agreement.
This briefing was conceived and created in cooperation with Practising Law Institute (PLI) and the Law Library Association of Greater New York (LLAGNY). This briefing is chaired by Patricia Barbone, Gitelle Seer and Janice E. Henderson.
