Licensing and exploiting technological research is an essential source of revenue for many companies, universities and research institutions. It is vital that those who advise on issues or agreements relating to the transfer of technology or who manage the licensing of technology have a good understanding both of the issues that lie behind the terms of technology transfer agreements and of the ways and words (the terms) that license parties use to address these issues. This revised third edition of the best seller will provide a comprehensive understanding of the legal, contractual and managerial issues involved in transferring technology to the market. It will help to avoid the many pitfalls that can arise from badly drafted contracts and to exploit intellectual property more profitably. Written in an accessible style this work takes full account of important case law developments over the last few years in the common law jurisdictions (Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the USA) and covers the full range of topics involved in licensing; including commercial and contractual background, EC competition law (including EC Regulation 1/2003 and EC Regulation 772/2004). It will be a valuable resource for professionals who advise on technology transfer contracts or who manage license negotiations and the transfer of technology. The book also comes with a CD-ROM containing the full text of relevant EC legislation and guidelines on technology licensing from other jurisdictions (Canada, Japan, Korea and the USA). A chapter discussing the relevant laws in China, India, Taiwan and Vietnam has also been added to this edition.
