Availability: In stock
Choppy Waters: Navigating the Intersection of Bankruptcy and Intellectual Property explores and discusses some of the fascinating and challenging issues that can arise at the intersection of bankruptcy law and intellectual property law under the legal system of the United States. This book is primarily intended to be used by legal professionals, especially those who possess a general understanding of either United States bankruptcy law or United States intellectual property law and who want to be aware of some of the issues that may arise when these two bodies of law interact. The book offers a compendium of the various types of intellectual property and unique claims and other issues that may arise in the context of litigation with respect to intellectual property; a discussion of the basic framework of both intellectual property laws and bankruptcy law; an introduction to some of the issues that may arise when intellectual property rights collide with the bankruptcy process, including the treatment of intellectual property license agreements as executory contracts in bankruptcy; and, finally, the sale of intellectual property in bankruptcy, and important recent cases, such as the Supreme Court decision in Tempnology.
