Article by R. Graham Phoenix and Matthew Thurlow published in international legal publication

In the Spring 2015 edition of The Globe, published by LawExchange International, R. Graham Phoenix and Matthew Thurlow published an article on IP license rights in Canadian bankruptcy and insolvency scenarios.

The article, titled Canadian Crumbs:  IP License Rights and Bankruptcy in Canada considers the recent decision of the US Bankruptcy Court in In re Crumbs Bake Shop Inc. et al, 2014 WL 6608177 (Bankr. D.N.J. Oct 31, 2014) and discusses how the same issues may be decided under Canadian law.  The article was authored for an international audience, with The Globe distributed in 23 countries around the world, and is worthwhile for anyone dealing with licensesd IP in Canada.
