Date: June 30, 2022 (Thursday)
Time: Noon – 1:15 PM (Eastern)
Cost: Members: $150, Non-Members: $225

Universities licensing software, content and data must overcome many issues, including providing support services, navigating Unrelated Business Income (UBI) and Private Business Use (PBU), following state laws prohibiting certain commercialization activities, and complying with data privacy laws. This session will explore novel, innovative and validated licensing models that address these challenges. Those new models include partnerships with local subject matter experts to provide service, joint IP development and commercialization models, digital platforms for dissemination, and dual licensing. We'll also cover licensing of clinical data.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the possible issues associated with licensing data, software and content
  • Leverage new models of licensing for software, data, and content
  • Describe how these new models address issues and mitigate risks
