The webinar discussed the perspectives commonly held by the licensor, a non-profit institution with a mission to transfer technology for the public benefit, and the licensee, a business enterprise chartered to make a return on its investments. Additional topics included typical terms used to capture the deal, specific examples to illustrate potential issues created with certain approaches, and the legal underpinnings that motivate certain specific terms of the licenses agreement.
