Litigation Partner Stuart Riback wrote a chapter in the recently published Wolters-Kluwer 2016 Licensing Update that addresses the still murky question of what happens to a licensee of IP when the licensor files for bankruptcy protection?
This is a situation that happens more often than most people realize and is at the confluence of two fairly specialized legal areas: intellectual property and bankruptcy. Stuart has been involved in cases related to this issue and has researched the issue. His chapter provides an analysis of existing case law and how this issue may continue to evolve in the future.
