Published by the American Bar Association (ABA), Bankruptcy and Intellectual Property Deskbook provides you with a resource for understanding the issues surrounding IP, the Internet, and bankruptcy. It allows the bankruptcy practitioner dealing with IP, and the IP expert dealing with bankruptcy and insolvency, to understand the issues and approach them in a practical manner.

As a readily available reference, the deskbook provides deeper analysis of some of the more prevalent issues and important cases in this subject area. The book consists of three segments with the initial chapters focusing on intersections between IP, technology, and bankruptcy; presuming a basic understanding of the underlying legal systems. Also included are discussions on:

  • Bankruptcy treatment of intellectual property assets
  • The involved and complex rules governing bankruptcy treatment of intellectual property licenses
  • Intellectual property as collateral, primarily the perfection issues that arise during bankruptcy cases
  • Bankruptcy and cyberassets, such as domain names, Internet connectivity, digital currency, virtual assets, and social media accounts
  • Privacy rights and their treatment in bankruptcy cases
  • Basic concepts in bankruptcy law relevant to IP and licensing issues
  • Background information on patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret law, including transfer and licensing rules, to assist bankruptcy specialists

The deskbook also contains ancillary materials to help you through the process; including a glossary of key terms, substantive checklists, and listings of additional resources.
