On Thursday 13 October 2016 Stibbe will host a masterclass on intellectual property (IP) law in construction.

In construction, IP rights are of considerable importance. For example, do architects have the right to oppose partial demolition and transformation of a building which they have designed? Is a principal allowed to use the designs of a bankrupt contractor to have the work completed by a third party? How should the partners within a general partnership (vennootschap onder firma, v.o.f.) deal with IP rights which were established during the collaboration?

We will address the most important problems and disputes occurring in the field of IP rights in construction and how they can be avoided.

The following topics will also be discussed:

  • The role of IP rights in construction and the position of the involved parties, including architects, engineers, principals and contractors;
  • Some specific topics, such as IP rights and bankruptcy, copyright licenses and joint IP rights; and
  • The IP regulations often used in standard conditions and model agreements such as the DNR 2011, the UAV 2012 and the UAV-GC 2005, and the pros and cons .

Kindly note that this masterclass will be held in Dutch.
