The authorized use of the assets and related payments can be trading points when they acquire a licence. The key for the start-up licensee would be to first determine their likely asset use scenarios, and then negotiate favourable terms for the main uses of the assets. (g) a licence in another area or area of use, in addition to the territory and/or FIELD, is subject to a separate agreement and requires the presentation of satisfactory supporting documents for Harvard University and LICENSEE`s willingness and ability to develop and market in that other area and/or area of use the types of products or processes likely to be covered in that other area and/or field. (i) has used commercially the object granted in the country or countries that hold a license, directly or by means of a sublicensing, and reasonably holds the object granted to the public, or a license may also have a balance between exclusive and not exclusively. Such a license is sometimes referred to as «exclusive» and is a license in which the donor licenses more than one licensee, but accepts that it grants licenses only to a limited group of other takers. The group of licensees can be identified on the basis of name, description (a license is only granted to takers who meet certain criteria) or simply to the number (a limited number of licenses is granted by the donor). For example, an exclusive licensing agreement for a number of patents may allow the start-up to remove one or more patents from the agreement in order to reduce its costs. The licensee takes a risk in this agreement, but gives the licensee more flexibility. 9.3 LICENSEE presents in all sublicensings granted under this agreement that LICENSEE`s interest in such sublicensings is terminated, in the choice of HARVARD, for termination of it or transferred to Harvard. If this is done correctly, the licensed start-up can benefit from professional patent management systems that they would not otherwise be able to afford. In addition, the licensee will be encouraged to invest in patents by paying for the accelerated costs, the additional costs associated with increasing the appeal with the Patent Office, the patent defense assistance before a new review or any other cost that the start-up can avoid. In a licensing agreement, the licensee and the licensee have aligned incentives.

Both parties want the licensee to succeed. Many licensing organizations, like some. B of the major universities, have professional patent management systems. They manage professional inventions and manage their portfolios to maximize value for their licensees. [2] Exclusive licenses are regularly granted by universities and other technology transfer offices, as well as by patent holders and patent finance companies. These agreements are the way in which technologies can be brought to market without imposing burdens on a start-up, while giving the patent holder a stake in success. [1] 10.9 LICENSEE must comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In particular, it is understood and recognized that the transfer of certain goods and technical data is governed by U.S. laws and regulations that control the export of these goods and technical data, including all U.S. Department of Commerce export authorization rules. These laws and regulations prohibit or require, among other things, a license for the export of certain types of technical data to certain countries.
