Patent and Know-How Licence


This Patent and Know-How Licence is designed for use in situations whereby one party owns the rights to (and the intellectual property subsisting in) a patented invention and another party (the licensee) wishes to use the patent. The terms of this Patent Licence set out in detail the terms and conditions governing the licensee’s use of the patent.

This licence is suitable for use with both product patents and process patents (indeed it can cover either or both in the same document).

The licence granted under this document may be exclusive or non-exclusive and entitles the licensee to work under the patent rights and use technical information (or “know-how”) relevant thereto.

Payment under this licence takes the form of royalties which are payable at predefined intervals. The licensee is also required to maintain detailed records with respect to royalties.
