Securitisation: two items

1. Dr Aaradhana Sadasivam (KhattarWong Singapore) has in recent months been working on an article, "Securitizing Rights Over A Patent and Balancing the Securing Interests of Each Party to the Transaction". While her practice base is Singapore, the article is not geographically limited in its perspective and draws on US case law and some international developments as well as local provisions. If you'd like to take a look at this draft and let Aradhana have your comments, the article (currently just over 5,600 words long) is here and you can email Aaradhana here.

Right: For some, security is a blanket to stroke -- but it takes more to comfort lending institutions who lend on the strength of IP rights

2. The seminar scheduled for next Wednesday afternoon, 14 October, on the UNCITRAL proposals on the securitisation of IP rights (full details of the seminar are here) has now got well over 70 registrants. There's still room for a few more. To secure your place, email Sandra Holloway here and tell her you're coming. The event's free.
