Field-of-Use Licensing

by Sandra L. Shotwell, Ph.D.
Managing Partner, Alta Biomedical Group, LLC

Field-of-use licensing provides the licensor with greater control over the use of its intellectual property, while maximizing the use and value of the technology. In order to maximize the use of a given technology, managers will have some additional work to do as they identify, negotiate with, and manage more than one licensee. Special issues related to multiple licensees in distinct or overlapping fields will have to be handled with forethought and a balancing of interests.

When is field-of-use licensing worth the extra effort? When more than one company is needed to fully develop a technology’s potential, when different licensees are needed to address different markets, or when field-of-use licensing has the potential to significantly increase the financial return from a technology. In all of these situations, field-of-use licensing can produce better results for everyone involved.

If we look ahead, I believe there are many websites that do not provide education through the various posts they make, but this time I'm really flattered by what this website has created, because I feel very deep happiness after reading every single one of them.
