licensing barriers What’s the #1 complaint from licensees of university IP?

The lengthy and sometimes arduous task of negotiating a licensing agreement. The typical twists, turns, reviews, approvals and other common detours can derail your agreement before it even gets inked. But you can break down those barriers by carefully defining terms, responsibilities, and compliance expectations up front in two distinctly different types of licenses: “express” licenses and “ready-to-sign” licenses.  These streamlined agreements have been proven to speed licensing deals and alleviate the “hassle factor.”

That’s why we are offering two distance learning programs in one convenient package that focuses squarely on the benefits and drawbacks of each type of streamlined license as well as insight into who is using them and how they are faring.

Plus, with the STREAMLINE YOUR AGREEMENTS COMBO PACKAGE you save $100 – you get both programs and all handout materials for just $294. Here are the details:
