By Rich May, P.C. on April 25, 2013You run a technology company. Imagine for a moment that I am a prospective investor or buyer of your company. As I perform my due diligence, among a lot of other questions, I want to find out if I can trust your intellectual property chain of ownership. By that I mean, can I trace a contractual link between your company and all the sources of the technology that you use and distribute, and can I verify that you haven't given away ownership or destructively broad rights to someone else?
