When All Else Fails: How, When & Why to Terminate an IP License

Date: April 19, 2018Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Location:  Webinar

No one wants to terminate a license. Sometimes, however, it’s the best option available to give your IP a fighting chance to make it to the marketplace. It’s not a decision you can take lightly -- there are many factors at stake, including the risk of souring your relationship with the licensee, who may be a faculty member, student or local corporation in good standing. It’s critical to communicate effectively, while making sure all the proper steps have been taken in accordance with the terms outlined in the agreement. It’s a sticky situation, but one that your TTO can emerge from with relationships and IP intact if handled correctly.

That’s why Technology Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has scheduled this important webinar being led by Seema Levy, JD, Licensing Agreement and Intellectual Property Attorney for SUNY’s Stony Brook University’s Office of Technology Licensing and Industry Relations.

This detailed, practical webinar will focus on:

  • Drafting termination clauses with the how’s, when’s and why’s in mind such as:
    • Non-performance
    • IP challenges
    • Bankruptcy
    • Breach of contract
    • Royalty payment issues
  • How to handle post- termination issues:
    • Sublicenses
    • Return of IP, research materials, data, inventory, etc.
  • Mitigating the risks to relationships with faculty, students, and companies when terminating a license
