Considerations for Negotiating and Drafting Enforcement Terms in IP License Agreements

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: February 10th, 2021

A recent Federal Circuit ruling in Gensetix v. Board of Regents of the University of Texas System is yielding important lessons about the proper way to construct license agreements — particularly with regard to rights to enforcement among licensees — as well as the role of sovereign immunity when a litigant seeks to force a state university to join an infringement suit.

The decision has critical implications for how you draft enforcement clauses and how you can protect your IP while steering clear of unwanted litigation.

Tech Transfer Central has teamed up with legal experts from Intellectual Property law firm Oblon, McClelland, Maier & Neustadt to guide TTOs and legal counsel in drafting agreement terms to maximize their ability to achieve desired goals — and avoid involuntary joinder — when granting rights in university inventions to third parties. The case also has critical implications for those bringing infringement suits without participation from “necessary parties.” Join us on February 17th for Considerations for Negotiating and Drafting Enforcement Terms in IP License Agreements.
