This webinar aims to highlight the key differences between the European and US licensing systems and provide attendees with an insight into those matters which may need extra attention during the negotiation and conclusion of your IP licenses. The session will be presented by Michelle Lewiston and Louise McAdam, Solicitors at London-based Speechly Bircham.  Click here to register online.
