Intellectual property licensing is one of the most crucial income drivers among inventors and high-tech companies. A strong licensing agreement can increase the value of your intellectual property – not only as a result of immediately recognized revenue, but by increasing the apparent worth of your IP for future sale. Similarly, licensing a key patent or set of patents can open a wealth of opportunities for you to improve your products and capture greater market share. Finding and securing the optimal licensing deal is not a straightforward task; beyond simply finding the right licensee or property to license, there are countless legal concerns that must be considered.
