Description

Intellectual property is increasingly valuable, and companies can leverage its value to help the company grow and expand. Using IP as collateral opens up opportunities for companies, but before leaping, the company should weigh the risks.

Among the potential risks are a loss of the IP or limitations on certain rights related to the IP, a decrease in the IP's value, and encumbrances added to the IP, among others. It is critical for the parties involved in a transaction using IP as collateral to conduct the proper due diligence. From conducting searches to determining what licenses are in place to verifying the validity and enforceability of the IP, the parties should understand the full picture to evaluate both the value of the IP and the possible risks involved.

Listen as our panel examines using IP as collateral. The panel will discuss the steps needed to conduct due diligence and determine the value of the IP assets. The panel will also address the potential risks of using IP as collateral and offer best practices for navigating through the process.
