Szymon Gogulski and Marek Oleksyn on Cross-Border Assignment and Licensing of Economic Rights in a Copyrightable Work - Certain Practical Aspects (PDF)
Cross-border licensing of copyrights has been a major part of IP law practice. The worldwide copyright regime preceded globalization of the world economy. This was due to multilateral treaties, e.g., the Berne Convention, TRIPS and WIPO Treaties, which set up common standards of copyright protection. This article focuses on practical aspects of copyright licensing to be taken into account while drafting a cross-border licensing contract.
