This is a topic for university technology transfer professionals and legal counsel who must think about how to structure license agreements, including sublicensing income provisions, years before an invention may generate income. How an agreement defines sublicense income can determine whether a university receives millions of dollars. This webinar will focus on arguments made in court, how they were received, and how certain provisions create incentives for licensees to avoid paying sublicensing income. You will learn about how specific contract language has been interpreted in the courtroom and about the importance of the license's words. Panelists will also provide their experiences and real-world practical insights into sublicensing income clauses.

Monetizing & Enforcing Your IP With No Out-of-Pocket Cost

This webinar will be recorded on November 21, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
Universities often do not enforce valuable intellectual property claims because of a perceived financial barrier-hiring top-tier legal representation would cost millions of dollars, out-of-pocket. A University may not want to risk that financial downside to pursue a claim that has an uncertain upside. There are two ways, however, that Universities can solve this problem. First, Universities can hire top-tier law firms that represent intellectual property owners on a full contingency basis. These law firms can cover all legal fees and costs associated with an enforcement action. Second, litigation funding sources are eager to fund good intellectual properly enforcement programs. Using a litigation funding source, a University can select a law firm of its choice to enforce its intellectual property, while the outside funding company pays legal fees and costs. This session will cover the nuts and bolts of each approach, the pros and cons, and best practices.

Choosing the Right Open Source License for Your Software

This webinar will be recorded on November 12, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
Technology transfer offices are seeing more and more software disclosures. Software developed in research organizations often includes components downloaded from the Internet that include their own license terms and obligations. Meanwhile, researchers often want to release their software under an open source license while pursuing their commercialization interests. How does a licensing professional navigate the multitude of available open source licenses to select the appropriate license? What are the implications of releasing software with an MIT license versus Apache? Will the release of software under an open source license impact its patent filing? Is it possible to build a successful start-up using software released under an open source license? These are just some of the questions we'll tackle.

How a Crowd Sourcing Platform Can Help You Build Strong Team

This webinar will be recorded on September 17, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
North by Northwest (NxNW) is an £8 million expansion of the successful UK-based Innovation to Commercialization of University Research (ICURe) pilot program that supports getting commercially-promising faculty to market quickly. During this pilot, we identified "business mentors" to help accelerate commercialization and developed a way to engage and incentivize these mentors to support "deal" activity. In order to make the effort scalable, we deployed an online crowd-sourced platform and encouraged our business mentors to follow license-based milestone principles. In this webinar, we will share our experiences identifying external, domain-specific "business mentors" and in building stronger teams.

Why Settle? Networking Your Way to Greater Innovation

This webinar will be recorded on September 5, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
U.S-based tech transfer offices have supported the contribution of more than $591 billion to the gross domestic product since 1996-but could it have been more? Typical academic commercialization pathways sometimes miss underrepresented entrepreneurs, leaving research in the lab and preventing consumers from accessing valuable science and technology. Tech transfer officers help creative, entrepreneurial scientists achieve their goals by developing effective networks. Networks help us access ideas, recruitment sources, partnerships, mentoring opportunities, novel perspectives, capital, and the latest innovations. In this webinar, we will cover the key characteristics of effective networks and provide strategies for both assessing and growing your network. Funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the nation's leader in entrepreneurship innovation, S2M has been used to develop and test promising practices for inclusive decision-making, advancing STEM founders from groups that have often been overlooked by entrepreneurial support.

SBIR/STTR: What University Staff Should Know

Universities and other nonprofit research institutions continue to face challenges finding funding and technology development opportunities for their organizations. Partnering with small businesses can generate synergies for leveraging greater opportunities, especially when technology managers take the helm to navigate their university and researchers to a successful collaboration. The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, also known as America's Seed Fund, are some of the largest sources of early-stage capital for technology commercialization in the US. These programs allow US-owned and operated small businesses to engage in federal research and development that has a strong potential for commercialization. These funds are specific budget set-asides reserved for small business research, but universities and nonprofit research institutions can partner with a small business to access these funds as sub-awardees. Under the SBIR program, universities and nonprofit research institutions usually play key roles as collaborators for small businesses, while under the STTR program, the small businesses must formally collaborate with a university or nonprofit research institution to qualify for the funding opportunity. In addition to access to these funds, the SBIR and STTR programs can also provide technology development and licensing opportunities for university-owned technologies. In this session, we'll discuss how for universities, it can be a win-win for those knowing what's available and how to proactively engage for the institution and its researchers.

Drug Repurposing from a University Perspective

The repurposing of therapies for alternative disease indications is an attractive approach that can save significant investments of time and money during drug development. It can also generate highly marketable technologies for the savvy university. Repurposed drugs are generally approved faster, are awarded market approval at a rate three times higher than new drug applications, and at half the cost associated with new drug applications. Academic researchers have successfully begun integrating repurposing into their grant applications from both federal and private donors. In this webinar, we will discuss these themes as well as what, from a university perspective, can lead to a successful program in licensing repurposed drug assets. Particular emphasis will placed on how to develop strong patent strategies for repurposed drug assets.
