Intellectual property aspects of corporate joint ventures
Practice notes

This Practice Note sets out some of the key intellectual property (IP) issues that should be considered when setting up a joint venture (JV). This Practice Note considers the scenario where two organisations (parent companies) set up a JV which is a separate legal entity (eg a company or a limited liability partnership), which they jointly own. It does not consider the IP issues that arise in contractual collaborations (where there is no separate legal entity).
