Course Description

Everything is turning up digital these days. From software to data to mobile apps, digital content can be challenging to manage, yet it can provide a wide range of commercialization opportunities. The 2012 AUTM Software Course is designed specifically for technology professionals who must answer the many questions associated with digital content. Who "owns" the content? What rights does my Institution have? (This may be a particularly difficult question to answer when students are involved in the development of the content and the content may fall in both the copyright side and the patent side of the Institution’s IP Policy.) What type of IP protection best suits digital content? Is the open-source model best for distributing the content? What are the alternative pathways for distribution (online v. exclusive licensees)? And most timely: Is this a mobile application and how do we distribute it? Attendees will be presented with a broad range of relevant knowledge and examples, both basic and specific, so that they can handle the challenges and the opportunities that digital content may bring.

Certified Licensing Professionals (CLP) Continuing Education

Certified Licensing Professionals are required to demonstrate continued competence in their field to maintain their certification status. Individuals who hold the CLP designation can renew their credential by earning at least 40 continuing education (CE) credits. Educational courses and conference sessions, such as the AUTM Software Course, that are relevant to the licensing industry can be used to meet this requirement. One clock hour of participation in these events is equivalent to one CE credit. Visit for more information on the recertification requirements.
