International Technology Licencing
Licensing your IP to another party can be an effective way to exploit the IP, particularly if you don’t have the resources, experience or initial capital to develop and market your product or service.
John Baxter will explain how to structure an international licence agreement, including deciding on what basic rights are granted and in what territories, the remuneration terms, the performance clauses, and the management of joint developments and the potential creation of new IP under the licence agreement
