Licensing and Contracts
Patent licenses allow individuals or businesses to use another entity's patent without risking infringement. Licensing provides a number of key benefits. In utilizing another's license, one can avoid the expense and time
investment involved in creating and patenting one's own technology. Licensing can also assist one in staying competitive in the marketplace and ensuring the success of one's business. If you are interested in licensing a patent, or making your patent available for licensing, contact a

Questions to Ask Before Licensing
If you are seeking out a patent to license, there are some questions that you should ask before you contact the potential licensor (the entity you will be licensing the patent from). These include:
- Is the licensor a company that is actually utilizing the intellectual property, or is it an individual who is unfamiliar with licensing and the potential of their product?
- Does the licensor already have other existing patents on the technology or art in question?
- Has the patent been filed in the U.S. only, or has it been filed in a number of other countries?
An attorney will assist you in answering all of these questions so that you can make a well-informed decision about your licensing transaction.
