15.10.2015 BE law

After a successful first edition focusing on “Protecting your IP”, Stibbe and Agoria are organizing a joint seminar again, this time at Agoria’s offices on 15 October 2015, focusing on licensing agreements.

By means of case studies and sample contracts, combined with interactive debates involving panelists from leading Belgian industry players, our speakers will answer your questions about license agreements and some related considerations in various areas of law.

Ignace Vernimme and Michiel Van Roey from our IP team focus on IP and licensing, tackling questions such as: What can be licensed? What are the different types of agreements? and so on. Hendrik Viaene and Anne-Sophie Stappers cover pitfalls of licensing agreements from a competition law perspective. Erik Valgaeren and Nicolas Roland focus on software licensing, compliance and non-compliance issues, and software audits.
