Sublicensing can be tricky – but properly drafted provisions and a solid compliance plan will protect your IP and keep royalties flowing in the right direction.

Granting third parties the right to licensed IP through sublicensing provisions is tricky business for university TTOs. If the sublicensing provision is overly broad, you open up the IP to potential abuse. Too strict and you limit advancement of the IP and may lose out on royalty revenue. It’s a balancing act that takes expertise, and lessons are often learned the hard way.

Join us for this critical webinar featuring IP attorney and licensing expert Kristie Prinz:
