Written by two senior attorneys known for their work across the breadth of technology and new development law, Joint Development Agreements Line by Line is perhaps the most up-to-date and readable work in this rapidly expanding area. The authors have created an entertaining hypothetical that pulls from real-world experiences to illustrate the context for the sometimes arcane language of typical joint development agreements. Covering the legal constructs critical to development work from concept to distribution channel, this book incorporates issues related to copyright, trademark, trade secret, and patent law, along with the practical problems for joint development efforts related to human relations, organizational control processes, security/privacy, and market positioning. This comprehensive guide was written by business lawyers for practitioners, business leaders, and C-level staff across the breadth of new product development. A must-read before your next joint development venture, this book will walk you through, step-by-step, the necessary legal infrastructure required for a successful co-development venture. Joint Development Agreements Line by Line is focused on creating solutions to problematic components in joint development and continuously focuses on the opportunities, rather than the obstacles, in generating new sources of revenue and new markets through joint development activity. The included CD-Rom provides searchable PDF and Word versions of the book and sample agreements.
