About this patent licence
The essence of this patent licence agreement is that it is a licence by an inventor to a person or company who will market your patent for others to exploit in a given territory. The agreement can also be used for any other copyright work where you rely on sub-licences agreed and set up by someone else.
You invent the gizmo. Your licensee sells it on by sub-licence to manufacturers. Your gizmo is likely to be something which cannot be used alone, but must be incorporated into another product. Examples: a switch mechanism; a ski binding; a diamond cutting blade; a tranquiliser dart.
Use for any industry or purpose; home or abroad; for a period of time, or more likely, for ever; cash payment or royalty, or both.
You can use this agreement for a one-off deal or for multiple agreements, each for a different territory.
