Intellectual Property Taxation: Transaction and Litigation Issues, Second Edition, with accompanying CD-ROM, considers, on a comparative basis, the tax implications of major business transactions involving both traditional and emerging forms of intellectual property. The authors’ analyses strike a perfect balance between technical tax considerations and the complexities of intellectual property transactions.
Topics discussed include IP holding companies, research and development limited partnerships, and cost-sharing arrangements; taxation of emerging forms of IP assets, such as domain names and web content; new tax regulations governing IP development costs; federal and state tax treatment of e-commerce transactions, including sales of online music, digital content, and software; and international tax rules governing IP development, acquisitions, licenses, and transfers.
