Technology Licensing and Development Agreements authored by Cynthia Cannady:
Technology Licensing and Development Agreements is an indispensable guide for lawyers, businesspersons, technology managers, scientists, engineers and policy makers.
"The book is beautifully clear and creates step-by-step instructions for every aspect of the technology licensing process. If I were a young, technology-transfer officer at a company or university, I would kill for this book. Appreciating the step-by-step instructions alone, however, would miss much of the elegance of the writing. The author's wonderfully colorful analogies breathe life into an otherwise dry terrain. " --Robin Feldman, Professor of Law and Director of the Institute for Innovation Law, University of California Hastings College of the Law
