Technology licensing relationships and transactions are increasingly important for many businesses. Today, very few B2B transactions can wisely omit provisions governing the licensing or cross-licensing of one or more technologies which includes software and related services between businesses.
“Technology licensing” is an umbrella term that encompasses important parts of many business transactions—some companies may license technologies such as semiconductor design services and related intellectual property rights including patents, copyrights, know-how, and trade secrets. Other businesses may license technologies as part of transactions for larger purposes, such as franchise agreements, software development, support agreements, and Value-added Reseller Agreements (VAR). Many such transactions cross national borders.
