Technology Licensing 101
Wednesday, April 20, 2022 | 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PT

Technology licensing is a fundamental aspect of any company’s strategic portfolio management. Whether those licenses are for IP assets, software, know-how, or just general technology, thoughtful licensing agreements can deliver value, open new markets, and foster dynamic relationships with business partners. Conversely, poorly drafted licensing agreements can expose companies to significant legal and financial risks.

In this presentation, Fish & Richardson Principals David Hoffman & Michael Headley along with Janine Haines, Director and AGC, Reality Labs at Meta, will discuss strategies for optimizing technology-licensing agreements (including joint venture agreements) and identify common pitfalls that practitioners should avoid.
