What is an IP Agreement?
An intellectual property (IP) agreement is an agreement between two or more parties that outlines the specific rights and limitations of each party’s intellectual property. The purpose of an IP agreement is to protect the intellectual property of the parties involved by clearly specifying what each party may do with their IP and what they may not do.
IP agreements can be very complex and it is important to seek legal advice before entering into one. This is because you can be left vulnerable if the agreement is not properly written or if you do not fully understand your rights and obligations under the agreement. These liabilities can be incredibly costly. Each type of IP agreement has its own specific purpose and terms. It is important to understand what each type of agreement covers before entering into one.
If you are considering entering into an IP agreement, please contact us for more information and let us oversee your IP agreement process.
What are the Most Common Types of IP Agreements?
Through an intellectual property licensing agreement, you will remain the owner of your copyright, patent, or trademark but you will be allowing another person or entity the permission to use your intellectual property in some capacity. There are a variety of intellectual property agreements that you can sign. Here are a few of the most common types:
Non-Exclusive License – A non-exclusive license allows the licensee to use your intellectual property, but you are free to license it to other people as well – along with your ability to continue using it yourself. This is often the most common type of intellectual property licensing agreement.
Exclusive License – An exclusive license means that you are granting the licensee the sole right to use your intellectual property. You cannot license it to anyone else during the term of the agreement and you cannot utilize the intellectual property yourself.
Sole License – Similar to an exclusive license, a sole license agreement involving an intellectual property grants the licensee the only rights to use the intellectual property. The main difference is that with a sole license, you may continue to use the intellectual property yourself.
When you are entering into an agreement, it is important to make sure that you understand all of the terms and conditions before signing on the dotted line.
It’s important to note that when you sign an intellectual property licensing agreement, you will still retain ownership of your intellectual property. The agreement simply provides the licensee the ability to use it under the terms of the agreement. If you need help sifting through your options, get in touch with our law firm today.
What If I’m Having a Dispute Over an IP Agreement?
If you are having a dispute over an IP agreement, there are a few things you can do to try to resolve the issue. First, you should reach out to the other party involved and see if you can come to an agreement outside of court. If that is not possible or if the other party is not cooperating, you may need to file a lawsuit.
When filing a lawsuit, it is important to make sure that you have all of the necessary documentation. This includes any correspondence between you and the other party, as well as any contracts or agreements that are in place. Without this documentation, it will be difficult to prove your case in court. We can assist you in settling disputes over an IP agreement before it reaches a boiling point. We deeply understand IP and patent law and will work with you to ensure an amicable agreement is reached.
