Intellectual Property and Bankruptcy, Can’t We All Get Along? - Thursday, June 29, 2017
Click here to download the registration brochure
As transaction lawyers, especially intellectual property lawyers negotiating license agreements, we worry about many different issues, from protection of the intellectual property to what our support obligations or warranties might be.  Bankruptcy is typically an afterthought.  Yet, bankruptcy can have a profound (and often unexpected) effect on IP licenses.  This webinar will provide some of the basics of how the law treats license agreements in bankruptcy (including special provisions for intellectual property) and some drafting tips to help your clients in the event of bankruptcy. Neil Olson will present from the point of view of the intellectual property lawyer (he makes no claims to being a bankruptcy lawyer).  He was the general counsel for FNC, Inc. in Oxford, MS for 15, years prior to FNC’s sale in 2016.  He now provides advisory services to other startup organizations including educational material under the whimsical title of “CAMP IP”.  Mr. Olson is a graduate of the Southwestern University School of Law and is a member of the California State Bar.
