Intellectual Property Issues in Venture Philanthropy Transactions

On November 16, 2012, David Lubitz presented the disease foundation perspective on intellectual property (IP) issues in venture philanthropy transactions. Lubitz explained that disease foundations, while not necessarily interested in owning IP, insist on maximizing IP value through dissemination and sharing among scientific researchers and on retaining march-in rights. The webinar is available for review at Lubitz and Schaner will serve as expert consultants at FasterCures annual Partnering for Cures conference in New York City on November 28-30.
