Licensee Caution

Assigning Patents Is Very Risky ! !

Blue bar graphic divides sectins of the page

Licensing an invention is often much riskier then venturing (launching you own company).  When licensing it is not uncommon for the licensee to try and convince the inventor to assign the patent to them.  

It is a grave mistake for any inventor to agree to assign a patent unless that agreement is accompanied with FULL PAYMENT.  

In the event that the licensee ever files bankruptcy the court can discharge the debt and the patent can be sold without any recourse by the inventor if they have assigned the patent.  

All license agreements should have a clause terminating the license in the event of a bankruptcy.
