    8/20/2014 · Forgery & Fraud
    When many people think about fraud, their thoughts usually turn to banks, investment firms and large businesses. But don't be fooled. Not-for-profit organizations – including many charities, colleges, religious entities and trade groups – are often easy targets for sophisticated fraud schemes.

    Business acquisitions and dispositions are often highly complex transactions which can possess an increased potential for disagreements-disagreements that can eventually lead to contentious and costly litigation. Various types of disputes can arise from the purchase or sale of a business, and these post-closing or postacquisition disputes can delay or even derail what may otherwise appear as obvious "win-win" transactions.

    Royalty auditing is a niche service that has exploded in popularity over the last 20 years. The primary purpose of a royalty audit is to test whether a licensee has complied with a license agreement or statutory requirement. The royalty auditor is hired by an intellectual property owner (aka, licensor) or minerals owner to inspect the books and records of a licensee primarily to determine if usage-based monetary amounts have been paid as contractually required. In addition to monetary damage calculations, most royalty audits examine for breach of contract in a wide variety of areas, such as intellectual property protection, record keeping, distribution channels, and permitted usage.

    This book navigates readers through the nuances of drafting the best possible financial terms for license and other self-reporting agreements and shows how proper monitoring and auditing should occur once a deal is in place. The 2014 Edition includes updated information on how to properly write the financial aspects of royalty contracts to protect the licensor, licensee, and other concerned parties. Additional sample terms and "real-world" agreements have also been included.

    This book navigates the nuances of drafting financial terms for license and other self-reporting agreements and shows how proper monitoring and auditing should occur once a deal is in place. This book will modernize and remold how agreements are written and will greatly enhance the bottom line of licensors and other contractors. Lawyers involved in drafting license and other self-reporting contracts typically understand boilerplate provisions but not the financial nuances that are subject to high degrees of interpretation that eventually costs their clients significant money and business relationships.
