Patents, Know-How and Design Agreements
Patents are the hallmark of innovation. In virtually every case they represent the culmination of considerable investment both in terms of time and in terms of money. Patents also represent a valuable asset which can be exploited.
The documents in this subfolder enable you to do just that. Patent Licence Agreements allow other parties to “work” the patent in return for licence fees or royalties and subject to terms and conditions laid down by the patentee. By also licencing the know-how relating to a patent as well as the patent itself, the licensee is provided with instructions allowing them to exploit the patent correctly.
On a larger scale, a Manufacturing Licence allows third parties to exploit a broader range of intellectual property rights.
For the complete sale or transfer of a patent, a Patent Assignment Agreement provides both compliance with the law and protection for both parties.
