Field Of Use Restrictions In Licensing Agreements

However, if the claims fall under different groups, reference could be made to the claims required for the proposed area of use or claims covering uses that are not intended to be included in the certificate could be expressly excluded. Here are some examples of the grant language that could be used in this type of approach: the instructions provided here are intended to help licensors maximize the reach of their innovations in several areas, whether these fields exist at the time of licensing or are born during the development of the innovation. Sometimes a licensee can develop the full potential of a technology, but they often need multiple partners, each with their own center, resources, and expertise to fully exploit that potential. Note that this definition of patent law allows for the usual possibilities during lawsuits (splits, continus, foreign equivalents); However, if a normal descendant, a partial sequence, can bring new material, the definition limits the inclusion of that case to claims relating to the subject matter of the original patent application. This provides some certainty that the uses of the invention will not be included in the license during the attempt to grant a patent, beyond the intended use. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Stanford grants Licensee a license under a licensed patent in the field of human carcinogenic drugs. However, it is often possible to derive value from the limitation of uses available to each licensee. A company may not be able to develop all possible applications of a technology due to its business focus or limited resources. .
