Main Volume Information

As licensing law is created and revised to keep pace with developer and user needs, Intellectual Property, Software, and Information Licensing: Law and Practice, with accompanying CD-ROM, provides the information and tools practitioners need to develop comprehensive licensing agreements, rectify existing problems, maximize returns within the legal boundaries, anticipate new concerns, and avoid potential pitfalls. Unlike other licensing treatises, which focus on either license drafting or on the theory of license agreements, this treatise draws from the authors’ wealth of professional expertise to develop a balanced treatment that is both theoretical and practical in its approach.

Supplement Information

The 2013 Cumulative Supplement provides updates on the latest licensing cases, including:

  • Decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the body of licensing law
  • Court decisions clarifying when a transaction is a copyright or patent first sale and when it is a license
  • Rulings on the enforceability of open source software licenses and the antitrust implications of licenses used in standards organizations
  • A ruling that baseball box score data may be freely used under the First Amendment but that the First Amendment does not permit free Internet streaming of a live sporting event
  • Courts decisions on a host of issues related to the practice of drafting license contracts, including the distinction between and implications of contractual covenants and license conditions, and the language needed to make an effective assignment of rights
  • The impact of bankruptcy and tax law, including a bankruptcy court for the District of Utah decision on whether a domain name at issue in a dispute was the property of the estate
