Majid Sarbazian
Department of Law, Faculty of Law, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran
Abstract:   (1005 Views)
Background and Aim: “Knowhow" is a term that is less considered as the main subject of the contract. It is aimed at this article to explain the meaning and characteristics of this notion.
Materials and Methods: This is a descriptive Study.
Ethical Considerations: Honesty and confidentiality have been observed.
Findings: In general, “Knowhow" is a form of knowledge; it contains non - material goods; it cannot be registered; it possesses confidentiality; it is identifiable; it is transferable and has business value.
Conclusion: “Knowhow” is a kind of property and therefore one can own it; but it is not goods in action (Ein). The methods of protecting “Knowhow" are due to Tort and contractual responsibility.
Keywords: Knowhow, Property, Ownership, Contract
