Program Description:

This webinar will provide a broad overview of the basics of licensing intellectual property rights to commercial (non-US Government) companies. The seminar will briefly review the decision-making process to license IP rights, how to establish an initial value for such rights, and what information must be gathered before offering the IP to a third party. The primary focus of the session will focus on fundamental concepts relating to structuring term sheets, preparing for negotiations, and reviewing the elements that should be included in your license agreements.
