IP is often the most valuable asset of a sports organisation, but when it comes to drafting a licensing, sponsorship or software agreement, how closely do you examine the IP provisions?

This session will take the form of a mock negotiation of an IP-heavy agreement and consider:

  • What rights can you actually assign/licence?
  • Licensing third party IP
  • Rights in performances
  • Approval processes
  • IP warranties and indemnities
  • Consequences of termination

Breakfast and registration will be from 8:15am with the presentation starting at 8.45am and aiming to draw to a close by 10.00am.
