Protecting Intellectual Property Rights in Joint Ventures and Lessons Learned From Recent Disputes

Parties that contribute or create intellectual property in connection with joint ventures face a number of challenges to ensure that their rights are adequately protected during the relationship and after the venture. Many of the issues that arise and risks involved can be mitigated by taking the right approach at the onset of the joint venture.

Please join Richard Assmus and Kristine Young as they discuss legal issues, strategies and lessons learned from recent disputes involving the contribution and creation of IP in joint ventures.

Topics include:

  • Important aspects to consider when contributing IP to a joint venture and how to adequately define types of IP to avoid disputes.
  • Decisions regarding whether to assign or license IP to a joint venture and/or back to its owners.
  • Considerations related to ownership and use of jointly developed IP.
  • Lessons learned from recent cases.
