Bankruptcy and Its Impact on Intellectual Property Law, Second Edition
Intellectual property (patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets) can become a significant asset of a debtor's estate, and special rules apply depending on whether the assets are defined as property of the estate or an executory contract. This second edition of Bankruptcy and Its Impact on Intellectual Property Law covers the basics of IP law, including a description of property rights, license and assignment issues, and infringements. Coauthored by a patent litigator and a commercial bankruptcy litigator, the handbook outlines what parties can do in a bankruptcy to protect intellectual property rights, including the DIP's ability to assign IP licenses. This second edition is updated with recent case law and is valuable to both the IP professional and the bankruptcy practitioner. Available in e-book format only.
