Tax and Litigation Implications of Intellectual Property Ownership & Licensing
Companies creating, holding, and enforcing intellectual property assets must consider important tax implications of the ownership of that IP and how those decisions then affect the ability to enforce the intellectual property. In this session, our panel will discuss considerations involving specific provisions under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020, changes brought by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017, and outcomes from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project, and how they impact the decisions of how and where intellectual property assets should be held. The panel will also discuss how those considerations impact the ability to enforce the IP and the damages to be recovered.
Our panel will also consider:
- Why do companies separate IP ownership from the manufacturing and distribution of product?
- What are the tax considerations for changing your IP ownership structure and the tax consequences of that change?
- What are the practical IP implications and drafting tips for intercompany agreements?
- How can your ownership-structure decision limit your ability to bring suit and recover damages in IP enforcement proceedings?
