Intellectual property (IP) licensing law involves the exchange of IP rights from the original or current owner to a third party. Usually the third party is paying to use a trademark, create a product based on a patented idea or use a copyrighted work. It is important for both parties to go into these agreements carefully and to resolve related disputes efficiently, with the help of an experienced team of intellectual property lawyers.
At SAC Attorneys LLP, in San Jose, California, we represent clients throughout the Silicon Valley and beyond. With decades of combined legal experience, our attorneys have a thorough understanding of all aspects of IP law and we can protect your interests in any type of IP licensing matter.IP Licensing Agreements
Our San Jose business attorneys represent individuals and businesses in intellectual property licensing agreements. Whether you are selling your IP rights or paying for rights to use someone else’s intellectual property, our attorneys can look over the proposed contract and help you understand your rights and options, as well as the potential pitfalls of a proposed licensing agreement.
We can assist clients with a wide range of IP licensing agreements, including:
- Exclusive licenses
- Nonexclusive licenses
- Sole licenses
Disputes and litigation arising from IP licensing agreements can be complex, protracted and extremely contentious. When an IP licensing dispute reaches the level of litigation, there is a lot at stake. Our business litigation attorneys have a wealth of experience handling complicated matters of this kind. We can protect your rights at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.
Whenever possible, we try to resolve IP licensing law disputes through negotiation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). In most cases, this approach is more efficient and can result in more favorable results for everyone involved. Only when we know that ADR is not a viable option will we take a matter to litigation. But when we do take a case to court, we do so aggressively and with an eye towards swift, decisive victory for our clients.Aggressive Intellectual Property Representation in San Francisco
