About this pharmaceutical rights sale agreement
You may be an individual or represent a company. You have produced a pharmaceutical or chemical innovation. It may be applicable in one industry or many. It could stand alone or be an ingredient in a yet more sophisticated product.
You want to sell all rights to a major manufacturer. You also retain rights to a royalty on sales. The sale may be limited to a particular market or industry. You probably intend to sell rights later for use in other industries or to manufacture it for your own use in your industry.
For easy understanding, we have named the chemical compound as “Hydrosolamid”.
Examples of the sort of chemical Hydrosolamid might be are:
- Special purpose lubricant or fuel;
- food preservative;
- food flavour enhancer;
- vaccine growth stimulator;
- cosmetic ingredient;
- hormone enhancer;
- DNA identification tool;
- paint pigment;
- concrete hardener;
- bio-tech ingredient.
Although the licence terms clearly separate the interests of the parties, arrangements of this nature often require considerable ongoing co-operation relating to the subject matter. This agreement does not provide for “support” as would a software product, but it does provide for co-operation and help, paid or free. Because this co-operation may be essential, in this agreement neither party is favoured. We have included reasonable protection for both parties.
Payment is by an up-front licence fee. The licence terms are extensive so that you have a suitable wide choice of option in this rather complicated area. The royalty provision also provides you with options, so that you can easily select and delete.
The agreement terminates on expiry of supporting patents or when generic versions available or as you wish.
