Seminar outline

Many businesses use license agreements when transferring technology to Asian countries, but there are many aspects that require careful attention with regard to the rights covered by the agreement, both for the party providing the technology and the party receiving it. Using a variety of case examples to illustrate important points, representative attorney Kenji Kuroda discusses topics that merit especial care, including confidentiality, scope of technical information, license terms and competitor products, and details restrictions particular to a number of Asian countries, such as China, South Korea, India, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia. The seminar also looks at common problems in technology transfers, such as royalty disagreements and leaks of confidential information, and how to deal with them.
