Drafting Licensing and Development Agreements to Avoid Expensive Legal Disputes. In Romag v. Fossil, the parties have found themselves heading to the Supreme Court to resolve a legal issue. Is that because there is a split in authority between the circuits, or because the agreement failed to protect against the dispute? This webinar will discuss key clauses where such disputes are likely to arise and will address due diligence and drafting best practices that can help to identify such issues and prevent extended and expensive litigation. Many of these issues relate to patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets, and the webinar will help the general practitioner to identify the key issues pertaining to each of these four types of intellectual property and to avoid wasting time and negotiating positions arguing over issues that are not important.

Each of these changes have increased the risks of trade secret misappropriation and the loss of other valuable confidential information. The termination of shelter-in-place directives and reversion to the on-site workplace presents further risks to company confidential information now shared to facilitate distanced activities.
