Overview


Technology licensing and development agreements are increasingly important to businesses in both the United States and abroad, in industries including computer hardware and software, nanotech, biotech, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics, energy, and environmental technology.

Technology Licensing and Development Agreements is an indispensable guide for business people, technologists, and lawyers who deal with intellectual property and contracts. The book provides practical advice on how to conduct negotiations, how to draft agreements, and how to monitor compliance. The author discusses technology contracts in the context of intellectual property strategy, and provides a framework for selecting and adjusting IP strategies. Chapters on material terms define, analyze, and discuss best practices, and offer sample clauses for more than 40 material terms. Additional chapters address special contexts for technology agreements, including antitrust and university contracts. The book includes specific chapters devoted to IP valuation, with clear explanations of methodology, and ethics in technology contracting, providing practical examples and a checklist.

An accompanying convenient CD includes more than 20 helpful form contracts and templates.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Cynthia Cannady has written a much-needed guide for lawyers, technology-transfer professionals, and business managers to understand not only why intellectual property is important, but also to understand how the entities they serve-including universities, federal labs, and private companies-can maximize its value."
--John Fraser, CLP, RTTP Past-President, AUTM Assistant Vice President for Research & Economic Development,
Office of Research, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida

"Technology Licensing and Development Agreements is a book that's grounded in practice and thus highly relevant to practitioners. It also addresses strategic issues in intellectual property, which are fast growing in importance for law firms and their clients. Lastly, Cynthia Cannady writes in a systematic way, without any jargon. A refreshing and highly valuable book!"
--Dr. Georges Haour, Professor at IMD, (International Institute for Management Development), Lausanne, Switzerland

"Anyone working with IP-related transactions will benefit from Technology Licensing and Development Agreements. Cynthia Cannady has distilled her extensive experience into an extremely useful reference that explains and provides samples of all significant provisions of license, development and university agreements. The excellent chapters addressing negotiations and ethics are also invaluable. Her easy prose and valuable insights make this book a worthy contribution to the profession."
--D. Patrick O'Reilley, Partner, Finnegan Past-President, Licensing Executives Society International
