Technology Intellectual Property
The phrase “technology transactions” can apply to a number of transactions under intellectual property (IP) law. The phrase often applies to filing registrations of intellectual property (e.g., trademarks, patents, copyrights etc.), customer or reseller agreements, software licenses or acquisitions, outsourcing or manufacturing agreements, brand licensing, or joint ventures.
Technology Assets Protection
Like business transactions, technology transactions require clear strategies, efficient communication, effective negotiation, and transparent, enforceable agreements. If a company is looking to leverage technology or intellectual property assets, it needs to be aware that additional legal issues may arise once technology is involved. In addition to business concepts, intellectual property laws, export controls, and international business laws and regulations may apply.
