Licence Agreement License

1.1. Under this agreement, the licensee issues a licensee to the licensee for the use of the Software (the “licence”). The license also includes documentation attached to the Software, as well as all developments, modifications, new versions and updates of the Software developed by the licensee and made available to the Licensee in accordance with the rules of this Agreement. A licensing agreement is a legal contract between two parties, the licensee and the licensee. In a typical licensing agreement, the donor grants the purchaser the right to manufacture and sell products, apply a brand name or trademark, or use the licensee`s patented technology. In return, the taker generally submits to a number of conditions relating to the use of the licensee`s property and undertakes to publicize the payments in the form of royalties. In the context of a pure licensing agreement, the licensee may, on its terms and under the common law, terminate the contract as it sees fit and without reason, unless it is linked to an interest or rendered irrevocable by contract. An interest-related licence cannot be revoked by the licensee without liability and potential damage. In the event that a licence is related to an interest, the licensee must give the licensee a reasonable period of time to withdraw that interest from the property prior to termination. Since a licence does not confer any interest on the licensee, the licence is terminated in the event of the sale of the property and cannot be imposed on the new owners of that property. In addition, the death of the licensee or licensee will terminate the contract. Harvard also offers options agreements for companies considering licensing Harvard technology.

An option agreement allows a company to “keep” a technology for a short period of time during which the company can continue to assess its potential or find funds for product development without committing or harvard to comply with the obligations of a licensing agreement. Options are typically six months to a year and generally require both overcharging fees and a refund of patent tracking for the duration of the option.
