CincyIP November 2017 Luncheon 

Join us on November 14th at The Hampton Inn & Suites* to discuss:


The Devil Made Me Do It: Lessons Learned in Negotiating License Deals

Steve Gillen of Wood Herron & Evans, will discuss lessons he has learned in negotiating license deals.  There is a well-established rule of construction applicable to the judicial interpretation of a contract: Words in a written contract are to be interpreted according to their common, ordinary, and usual meaning . . . unless manifest absurdity results . . . Foster Wheeler Enviresponse, Inc. v. Franklin County Convention Facilities Authority, 78 Ohio St. 3d 353 (1997). Mr. Gillen has,
over the course of his nearly 40 years of practice, collected many examples of contract language from a variety of IP licenses and agreements that illustrate the exception better than the rule. He’ll
roll them out for your edification and entertainment.

Additional information regarding Mr. Gillen is available at the CincyIP event page.

The deadline to register for this meeting is noon on Wednesday, November 8, 2017.  Why wait until then?  Register today!

* This month's meeting will be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites on Vine Street around the corner from The Cincinnatian.
