Using assets, for example, real estate as collateral is not uncommon in commercial transactions. However, have you ever thought of using intellectual property (IP) assets (such as trademarks, patents and copyright works) as collateral in a transaction? From legal procedures to expectation management with clients, this online seminar aims at providing a high-level overview of creating security interests over IP assets in Hong Kong and the PRC. The “why” and “how” of using IP assets as collaterals will be discussed and a case study involving security interests over different types of IP rights will be shared.
