Manatt partner to serve as panelist in PLI's Advanced Licensing Agreements 2011

Practising Law Institute's upcoming seminar on Advanced Licensing Agreements will take a close look at technology-based transactions and the thorny issues that may arise in drafting and negotiating IP licenses, focusing on offering industry-specific best practices for areas such as software, entertainment and life sciences.

Manatt partner Ken Kaufman will participate in back-to-back sessions: "Copyright, Content and Trademark Licensing" followed by "Analysis of a Content License Agreement." He will be joined by an impressive roster of panelists in both presentations, including Tucker McCrady (Associate Counsel, Digital Legal Affairs, Warner Music Group), in addressing the impact of digital distribution and media on licensing issues, considerations in trademark and brand licensing, structuring IP rights allocation and negotiating multimedia rights. The event will be held in Chicago, IL.
