New editions of the standard works "Groß, Der Lizenzvertrag [license agreement]” and "Groß/Strunk, Lizenzgebühren [license fees]”
Soon the two standard works by Dr. Michael Groß, "Groß, Der Lizenzvertrag [license contract], 12th Edition" and "Groß/Strunk, Lizenzgebühren [license fees], 5th Edition" will be published, each in a new edition and with many sample contracts, current court rulings and references to literature.
The renowned literature Der Lizenzvertrag comprehensively explains the license agreement law, which has largely been developed in practice. The focus here is on antitrust law. Contracts on the granting of rights of use, production and distribution of patents, software copyrights, utility models, designs and trademarks are dealt with. Current literature and case law is taken into account in the new edition. Furthermore, the block exemption regulations of the EU Commission are commented in detail.
The fifth edition of the work Lizenzgebühren represents royalties with regard to industrial property rights, trademarks, know-how and copyrights (e.g. computer programs). It presents calculation models, empirical values and contractual clauses using practical examples from Japan, Germany and the USA. It includes an overview of the accounting of licenses and the treatment of licenses in tax law. The new edition includes the latest literature and case law. Special consideration is given to empirical values as well as to questions of transfer prices, profit determination for permanent establishments, withholding tax problems and license boxes.
In addition, the Heidelberg Model Agreement 79 "Forschungs- und Entwicklungsvertrag" will also be newly published this summer in its 5th edition.
