RECORDED WEBINAR: Making Sense of IP Licensing

Tuesday 17th September 2013

Duration:  2 hours 

One of the best ways of generating revenue from your IP can be through licensing. But licensing your IP to a third party can often be a difficult path to navigate. Successful commercialisation of IP requires considered IP strategies as well as careful contract drafting. This presentation will examine:  
  • Choosing the right licence:
    • exclusive licence
    • sole licence
    • non-exclusive licence
  • The use of geographic restrictions and field restrictions
  • Performance requirements of the licensee
  • Royalties and payments (including upfront licence fees versus ongoing royalties)
  • Ownership of improvements to technology (eg does the licensee assign the developed IP to the licensor?)
  • Termination rights and trade out periods
  • Problem clauses in IP licences
  • Tax implications
  • Case studies 
This webinar is suitable for: lawyers advising businesses on IP issues, IP lawyers, in-house counsel – all States
