    Partner Mark Salzberg and of counsel Ivan Rothman will be participating in AUTM's 2020 Annual Meeting, held March 8-10, 2020, in San Diego, California.

    Mark and Ivan will co-present on "Intellectual Property and Bankruptcy: When Worlds Collide," analyzing the many challenges affecting intellectual property (IP) when the owner or licensee of intellectual property files for bankruptcy. They will also discuss the treatment of IP under the “Bankruptcy Code,” and how not all IP is treated equally; and analyze the rights granted to IP licensors and licensees when their counterparties file for bankruptcy and the options available to them (and the actions that they need to take to protect their interests). Additionally, they will discuss how IP can be acquired or sold through bankruptcy, and strategies that parties can use, prior to bankruptcy, to protect their IP rights. Lastly, the lawyers will address the Supreme Court's upcoming decision on the treatment of trademarks.
