Successful Technology LicensingChapter III: Key Terms

Cluster 4: Technology Growth and Development

future developments
Future Developments
  • Improvements by Licensor and Licensee
    • Developments made by any or the parties that the date of the license, that bring new features to licensed products, process or services. Sometimes improvements are know-how, they may also become patents.
  • Joint Improvements
  • New products
  • New patents
  • Service and support
  • TECHNOLOGY IS ALWAYS CHANGING! BUT CONTRACTS are fixed in time.
future developments by licensor
Future Developments by Licensor
  • The Problem: Licensor will often make future versions, new products, new patents.
    • Licensee wants to be able to have these;
    • Licensor does not want to be bound to grant these;
  • Rights of first refusal -- can be illusory and waiting periods may hold up other alternative business;
  • Licensee will generally want access to the latest, but freedom to stay with the old;
  • Avoid giving license to future patents.
future developments by licensee
Future Developments by Licensee
  • Avoid any commitments that limit options to develop new products;
  • Options to acquire new IP are popular - but on what terms? The terms for a right of first refusal have to be spelled out.
  • Usual requirementsorfeaturesaboutimprovements:
    • Difficult to keep other party informed. Mutual obligations to inform the other Party to be accepted after careful consideration.
    • Be careful as tograntback provisions.
    • Right to research should be included to allow for improvements.
    • Access to future developmentscan be negotiated.
future developments grant backs by licensee
Future Developments: Grant Backs by Licensee
  • Grant backs: when licensee must give back to licensor a licensee to improvements to the licensed technology. Can be mutual.
  • Platform strategy often involves grant backs: e.g. Linux /Open Source.
service and support who will perform who will pay for
Service and Support: Who will Perform, Who will Pay for:
  • Teaching and training?
  • Consulting, know how?
  • Corrections to defects, design flaws?
  • Maintenance, telephone support? (sometimes a separate contract)
  • Spare parts?
clusters 3 and 4 conclusion
Clusters 3 and 4: Conclusion
  • Financial Terms are always related to Clusters 1, 2 and 4.
  • Look at total value of all aspects of the deal, including new products, new versions, new patents are included.
  • Use flexibility in deciding how to pay.
  • Give both sides financial incentives to continue to work together.
