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

Annual Meeting. The Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement (MIPSA) Joint Task Force enjoyed a lively and productive meeting at the Business Law Section's first Annual Meeting in Chicago on September 11, 2014.

The Task Force's next meeting (by teleconference) will be held:

•October 15, 2014 (third Wednesday of each month)

•Time: 4:00 pm Eastern/3:00pm Central/2:00pm Mountain/1:00pm Pacific

•Toll Free Dial-in: 866.646.6488

•International Dial-in: +1.707.287.9583

•Conference Passcode: 9101063640

A revised Working Draft of the model agreement is attched below, with a redlined copy showing changes made since the Task Force meeting in Chicago.

The changes include cumulative revisions that Howard Darmstadter, Elaine Ziff and I have made throughout the agreement. There may still be some stylistic and even substantive inconsistencies, and we will need to root those out where possible. (The footnotes/endnotes are still omitted, pending general Task Force consensus on the latest revisions to the text.)

I hope you will be able to join us in person or by phone at the meeting. As always, please let me know if you have any comments, questions or suggestions. Thanks for your participation in this project.
