Benefits of IP Licensing

Licensing IP can be an easy way for companies to generate additional revenues and improve competitive barriers to entry. There are many reasons a company will consider licensing its IP – for example, it may be that the company does not have a use for a particular patent portfolio anymore, and so is considering licensing it out to another party who interested in exploiting the particular technology, or it may be that the company is using licensing as a way to grow or to attract a lucrative partnership.

When considering licensing, there are many factors that a company must consider including:

  • Exclusivity
  • Use
  • Territory
  • Time period
  • Foreground/ Background IP
  • Future Developments
  • Any services provided by licensor along with assets
  • Royalties or another payment method
