NextGen Medium-Rectangle-300×250-3a

Learn what to do when exclusive rights afforded to original works and invention are impacted by bankruptcy proceedings.

Bankruptcy law is generally a federal-based practice, and governed by title 11 of the United States Code (the Bankruptcy Code). Bankruptcy law, however, is far from an insular practice; there is substantial interplay between bankruptcy law and almost every other area of law due to the myriad legal issues that arise during the course of a bankruptcy case. This webinar focuses on how issues involving intellectual property, employment and labor, tax law, and environmental law are treated through the prism of bankruptcy.

The first episode of the series, The Intersection of Bankruptcy and… IP, airs on February 5th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Shelley Kinsella of Elliott Greenleaf. She is joined by James M. Sullivan of Windels Marx Lane & Mittendorf LLP and Christopher B. Wick of Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP.

Intellectual property generally includes patent rights, copyright rights, trademark and servicemark rights, and trade secrets. The foundation of intellectual property law is the protection of exclusive rights afforded to original works and invention. These rights can be significantly impacted by bankruptcy proceedings. This webinar examines some of these key issues including the perfection of security interests in intellectual property, the protection of certain intellectual property licenses and lack of protection for other types of intellectual property, the relief available to licensors, as well special issues regarding assignment of licenses in bankruptcy proceedings.

The BANKRUPTCY INTERSECTIONS 2018 Series is produced by Financial Poise™. Future episodes in the series include “The Intersection of Bankruptcy and… Labor/Employment,” airing on March 5th, “The Intersection of Bankruptcy and… Tax” airing on April 9th, and “Intersection of Bankruptcy and…Environmental,” airing on May 7th.
