2013 ABA Annual Meeting
The Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement Task Force met jointly with the Intellectual Property Financing Subcommittee of the Commercial Finance Committee, on Friday, August 9, 2013 at the ABA Annual Meeting in San Francisco.
The Task Force reviewed a new draft agreement, in the reader-friendly format created by Howard Darmstadter, focusing on the various ways to address representations and covenants to be made by the debtor regarding the collateral. A copy of that draft (7/22/13) is posted on this website.We apologize for the technological glitches to those who joined (or tried to join) us by telephone.
Volunteers. We are still looking for volunteers to review particular sections or provisions and recommend language. You can use the kiiac program, which lets you compare some 140 analogous language in other agreements, or use your own experience and/or other sample agreements.
