Ourso Presents on IP Licensing at ABA Intellectual Property Law Section Annual Conference
June 2, 2015

Justin Ourso, a partner in the firm’s Business & Commercial Litigation Practice Group in the Baton Rouge office, delivered a presentation at the Annual Conference of the Intellectual Property Law section of the American Bar Association on March 25, 2015, in Bethesda, Maryland. His presentation focused on Intellectual Property Licensing Agreements in Bankruptcy Cases. He also submitted a paper that explored the same topics: the Intellectual Property Bankruptcy Act of 1987; recent case law; recent legislative proposals to add trademarks to the definition of “intellectual property” in the Bankruptcy Code; and an ABA IPL Section Trademarks Division Task Force proposal to, instead, repeal § 365(n), which would affect the treatment of patent, trademark, copyright, software, trade secret, and other licensing agreements in bankruptcy cases. 

Mr. Ourso previously delivered a shorter presentation in Boston, Massachusetts, on the same topic to the Council of the Intellectual Property Law section, which is composed of the leadership of the Intellectual Property Law section of the ABA.
