Mike Ross – Bay Area Intellectual Property Licensing Attorney

Intellectual property is one of the most valuable assets for a company. Intellectual property laws including laws on patents, copyrights and trademarks all protect different ideas and information and help to ensure that the owners or creators have certain rights.

While your company may own intellectual property (IP) rights, often the best way to profit from that property is to license it to others. Licensing can be very complex and you need an experienced intellectual property lawyer with a deep understanding of how to protect your property while maximizing your potential profits. Bay Area Intellectual Property Licensing Attorney, Mike Ross can provide you with the assistance that you need. With more than 30 years of experience representing corporate and business clients, he understands the ins-and-outs of licensing agreements.

Licensing Agreements Can Benefit Your Business

Licensing makes it possible for the rightful owner of intellectual property to allow others to use that property for limited purposes. The owner of the property is compensated for the use, and a licensing agreement will generally outline the terms under which the IP owner profits and defines the terms of use.

Your company, for example, could license your brand’s identifying trademark for use to others and allow them to make products with that trademark for a portion of the profits. It is essential to negotiate a reasonable agreement and to protect the long-term health of your brand or ideas when entering into licensing agreements. Mr. Ross has extensive experience with IP licensing and will work to ensure that he gets the deal done for you while protecting your rights and interests.

Your company may also wish to license intellectual property from others. Mr. Ross can help you to identify and approach the property owner, to understand what types of licensing arrangements are available, and to negotiate and draft an agreement that allows you to use the IP for your desired purpose.

Whether you are hoping to profit from a brand or are interested in protecting or commercializing your intellectual property, you need a lawyer who will explain the laws, advise you on your options and work hard to get you the best agreement possible while always keeping the big picture of your company’s goals in mind.
