Intellectual properties are assets that can be licensed, bought, and sold. Transactions involving intellectual property need to be handled carefully. At the center of these transactions may be patents, trademarks, copyrights or trade secrets. In order to fully understand these transactions, the parties must be informed and their rights protected.
Agreements may be made to license intellectual property rights pursuant to certain negotiated terms and conditions. These license agreements may include provisions for payment of compensation and provide continual protection of the intellectual property rights licensed under the agreement.
