Introduction to Licensing
Wednesday, 31st May 2017, 2.30 pm - 4.30 pm
at the British Library London.
The development, manufacture and sale of products involves substantial investment, so securing your Intellectual Property rights and understanding how income can be generated from licensing those rights can be crucial. A licence is a contractual agreement specifying what the licensee is permitted to do and the terms and conditions applying. This will usually include any royalties and/or an amount of any payment to be paid to the licensor (the IP owner). There are numerous pitfalls for the unwary to be found in the detailed operational rules that form part of many licence contracts.
Using case study examples Richard Gallafent will cover the different types of licences, how to work out prices and ensure any agreement covers the essentials. The workshop will finish at 4.30 pm followed by tea and coffee.
