Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement Joint Task Force

Mission Statement

The Model IP Security Agreement Task Force is working on a model security agreement and possibly other documents dealing with intellectual property as collateral.

Task Force Meetings

To Members of the Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement Task Force (and the Intellectual Property Financing Subcommittee)

I hope you are all enjoying (simultaneously) a wonderful holiday season and a busy and productive year's end!

My gift to you is this reminder that the MIPSA Task Force is no longer holding monthly conference meetings.

The Task Force's work product consists of:

  • Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement; and

  • Introductory Report and Background Considerations.

The drafts posted on the website for the November meeting are in essentially final shape, subject to changes when we discover typos or incorrect references, as well as changes that the editorial staff of The Business Lawyer may suggest.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this project. I have appreciated your thoughts, comments, corrections, suggestions, and explanations, as well as your generosity in sharing your time and expertise with the Task Force over the last few years.

As always, special thanks go to Co-Vice Chair Elaine Ziff , for her IP knowledge, tenacity and commitment, and to Tsk Force Editor Howard Darmstadter for his patience and artful wordsmithing.

Best wishes for a great 2016!

Kathi Allen, Co-Chair
