This program will provide an overview of various strategic considerations in IP licensing and portfolio management, including related tax considerations. A moderated discussion will highlight IP ownership and license structures in the EU and Asian jurisdictions (with a particular emphasis on China) and some of their tax implications. The employment of EU patent box regimes as part of U.S. multinationals’ global tax planning will also be discussed. Finally, the panelists will discuss recent developments in US law as they relate to IP considerations discussed earlier in the presentation.
