Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement Joint Task Force


Mission Statement

The Model IP Security Agreement Task Force has completed its initial product, consisting of a model security agreement and accompanying report, published in the 2016 Summer issue of The Business Lawyer. Members of the Task Force are considering other projects dealing with the use of intellectual property as collateral.

Task Force Status



The MIPSA Joint Task Force has completed its initial work. See the Model Intellectual Property Security Agreement and Introductory Report and Background Considerations, 71 Bus. Law. 849 (Summer 2016). A Word version "template" of the model agreement, without footnotes, is posted below. Please note the caveats on the cover page.


Thanks again to everyone who participated in the MIPSA 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. Special thanks go to Co-Vice-Chair Elaine Ziff, for her IP knowledge, tenacity and commitment, and to Task Force Editor Howard Darmstadter for his patience and artful wordsmithing.


If you have ideas for additional task force projects, please contact Jeremy Friedberg (Chair of the Commercial Finance Committee) or Kristen David Adams (Chair of the UCCC ommittee.)
