LES Toronto Chapter presents:
How To Capture and License It
Thursday, December 5, 2019
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Norton Rose Fulbright
222 Bay St Suite 3000
Some technology licenses grant patent rights and limit the deal to valid claims. Others broaden this to the “technology” and include the kitchen sink. Often buried within is the promise to grant certain rights to the more elusive “know-how”.
But how do the parties “know how” to effectively capture and value the ‘know-how” to make good on that the promise?
How does this work in practice when parties may range from universities to corporations with employees coming and going?
Come join LES Toronto Chapter for what will be without doubt – a fun and informative event!
Lunch will be provided
Regular LES Member Registration Fee: $20 CAD
Regular Non-Member Registration Fee: $30 CAD
Fees are processed in USD.
