As business grows more global, the challenge for in-house counsel seeking to comply with the shifting landscape of IPT laws in all jurisdictions where they operate is intensifying. We designed our complimentary Guide to Going Global to help you meet that challenge head on. Inside this guide, we outline crucial aspects of IP and Technology laws in 34 jurisdictions that are particularly relevant to businesses seeking to expand their operations globally. We also summarize some fundamental commercial terms that customarily appear in IPT-related agreements.

You will find answers to such common questions as:

  • Which jurisdictions recognize moral rights?
  • What does my business need to do to have an enforceable assignment of intellectual property from an employee, from a consultant?
  • What kind of liability can be excluded from a commercial contract?

With this edition, we’ve also included a section for each country that discusses the enforceability of electronic signatures. Whether you are moving into new jurisdictions or managing your business across numerous borders, our guide helps to give you confidence that your organization has access to current information wherever you do business. We hope it will become an invaluable resource for you.
