When a company expresses interest in licensing an invention, OTL typically evaluates the intellectual property and determines whether to negotiate with that company. Depending on the nature of the invention, the company’s business model and its capacity to develop the intellectual property, OTL may grant an exclusive or non-exclusive license. The company’s agreement will include terms and provisions relating to development milestones, reservation of rights, and indemnification.
OTL works closely with the company and its legal counsel throughout the negotiation process. During this time, the key people from both sides often meet to discuss expectations and to identify potential issues. Negotiation times vary according to the number of contract provisions that require discussion. Generally, financial terms do not require lengthy negotiating periods. However, negotiating the scope of the licence and non-financial provisions such as field of use, term of the licence and indemnification can be more challenging.
