What It’s All About
This is a topic for university technology transfer professionals and legal counsel who must think about how to structure license agreements, including sublicensing income provisions, years before an invention may generate income. How an agreement defines sublicense income can determine whether a university receives millions of dollars. This webinar will focus on arguments made in court, how they were received, and how certain provisions create incentives for licensees to avoid paying sublicensing income. You will learn about how specific contract language has been interpreted in the courtroom and about the importance of the license’s words. Panelists will also provide their experiences and real-world practical insights into sublicensing income clauses.

You Will Learn:
  • When a court may find a deal is a sublicense
  • How licensing language will determine whether a payment to a licensee should be sublicensing income
  • How licensing language can create incentives for licensees
  • What other licensing professionals have done to handle practical issues relating to enforcing sublicensing rights and income payments
