The number of insolvencies is increasing by the day, while insolvencies are becoming more and more complex and international. Licences represent an increasingly important part of a company's assets - be they technology licences, name or trademark licences or licences with regard to text, photo or audiovisual material or software.

While insolvency proceedings of licensors or licensees can pose material threats to the prospects of the business concerned, there are still many uncertainties as to the fate of a licence, applicable law, place of jurisdiction in such proceedings and so on.

This practical handbook provides an overview of the most relevant legal issues in 30 of the most important business nations around the globe. It provides guidance to licensors, licensees, insolvency practitioners and their attorneys to promote a better understanding of the insolvency mechanisms in these countries and the effect that such proceedings may have upon licence agreements with an insolvent entity.

Whether you are an IP lawyer in private practice, an insolvency practitioner or general counsel in an international business, this commercially focused guide will provide you with practical insight into the relevant legal issues.
