Overview

This event will look at the practice of licensing intellectual property rights in a business world which is increasingly global and IT-based. It will examine – in non-technical language - the scope and context of licensing from a legal perspective, touching on relevant trends in patent, trade mark, copyright and emerging areas of intellectual property.
