In today's technology environment, licensed content and software are often an integral part of a company's marketing and business plans. Many of these license agreements have been tenaciously negotiated. Yet licensor and licensee often interpret the same license clause in dramatically different ways.
Licensees cannot withstand having a license terminated because of the lead-time needed to substitute another product. Conversely, licensors are under pressure by their shareholders to maximize revenues and ensure that licensees are in full compliance with the license scope.
In this program, expert practitioners with years of experience doing licensing deals discuss:
- Licensing issues that lead to disputes
- How a licensing dispute can be constructively and proactively handled
- License termination when the issues cannot be readily resolved
The panelists will discuss contract language, the use of audits, breach of contract claims, planning for termination, and other critical issues. The webinar will conclude with a Q & A.
