Patent Licensing And Agreement

Since the patent license is granted for a limited period of time, the licensee will reclaim its exclusive rights to its invention as soon as the licence period expires. There are many risks associated with making and manufacturing a design or product. With the patent license, the patent holder can transfer the risks associated with the manufacture of the patent design or product to the licensee. Under U.S. law, you cannot patent an idea.

All exports must comply with U.S. export control laws and regulations. Other countries may have laws dealing with the same subject or the registration of the final agreement with the government. In some cases, either or all of the parties do not want their name to be used in licensed products that are advertised or sold, as this indicates that the licensing institution recommends these products. If that is the case, it should be stated in the agreement.

A lawyer can help them ensure that all of these restrictions are properly described in your licensing agreement.
