Copyright or Patent Licence Agreement

Template: Copyright or Patent Licence Agreement

Introduction to licence agreement  templates

What Net Lawman says about this template:

"This agreement allows the creator of a work of intellectual property to license use of it to another person who in turn will sub-license use of it to third parties. It can be be used with any patent or other work under copyright.

It is likely that you are the creator of the work, for example, an inventor of a device. The device is not an end product, but rather something that is required to be used with other parts, or incorporated into another product.

Using this agreement, you "sell" the right to use the device to someone or a business that in turn "sells" the right on to manufacturers. You might be paid a fixed fee, or a royalty or both.

You can also choose to limit the geographical areas in which your intellectual property can be used, as well as the time period.

As examples, your IP might be a design for a device, such as an electronic switching mechanism, or software code.

You can use this agreement for a one-off deal or for multiple agreements, each for a different territory.

The document is written to protect primarily the creator of the intellectual property. However, we do not invite problems for you by ignoring the likely requirements of your counter-party. There are many provisions in this document that will satisfy the concerns of a fair minded licensee."

Detailed guidance notes are provided with each template. Net Lawman offers a money back guarantee if the document is not what you need, as well as a legal review option if you want some professional assistance when you are drawing up your documents.


The documents menus are designed to describe the documents, but please be sure that you check them over carefully to ensure that they do meet your needs. All documents are subject to Net Lawman's Terms and Conditions, which we ask you to read before you purchase any documents.
