Intended for both business people and legal practitioners, this book offers a practical conceptual framework for the analysis and implementation of cross-border technology transactions, as well as alerting potential parties to technology transfers to the salient issues they should systematically confront and resolve as they seek to structure and implement their transaction. Particular attention is devoted to the identification of traps in the path of successful international-technology transfer. The term ""technology"" is used in the book in its broadest possible sense, including what in some countries is referred to as ""industrial property"" and encompassing all legal categories of intellectual property, such as copyrights, trademarks, patents, know-how and trade secrets. The book applies an interdisciplinary approach to a complex and interdisciplinary subject and seeks to harmonize the frequently divergent perspectives that business people and lawyers bring to technology transactions.;The topics covered include intellectual-property regimes and how to safeguard one's proprietary rights in technology; contractual provisions; tax structures and tax implications of technology-transfer transactions; and conflicts of law, choice of law and dispute resolution in the international technology-transfer context.
