Licensing Law Materials
This site focuses on the contract law of licensing. Licensing information is not, in law or in fact, equivalent to selling goods or real estate. The hope is that this site will contribute to the growing recognition that a goods-centric view mischaracterizes today’s world.
Licensing is an area of contract law that has unique terms and themes. Contracts that license the use of or access to information, technology, data, and other intangible assets are central to the information economy. The law pertaining to them is the subject of this site. It is a subject that merits treatment.
Available resources include a compilation of selected cases that are interesting and informative, plus a compilation of selected articles. In addition, readers are invited to contribute suggestions regarding new materials for inclusion and to contribute to a forum of comments on licensing.

From platelet purple to plasma puce, the entire cacophony of CAR/DIO colors is brewed using a patented process. Can competitors copy the company’s cauldron to create a comparable kaleidoscope? Craven crayonists will be disheartened to learn that inventions that open the door to a competitive advantage can be sheltered by patents.
