The Bankruptcy Code grants special rights to licensees of intellectual property. It is imperative for in-house counsel to have at least a basic understanding of how intellectual property is treated under the Bankruptcy Code, and the rights and obligations of parties to intellectual property licenses.

My colleague Grace King and I recently wrote a chapter entitled “Intellectual Property Acquired Through Bankruptcy” that appears as part of the American Bar Association’s publication Intellectual Property and Technology. While the chapter may be directed to in-house counsel, it is also a useful guide for bankruptcy practitioners as well.
