Every technology has its own features and value propositions, and thus carries its own market opportunities. As a result, every conversation we have with a potential licensee will take its own path.
Below are links to two of our template agreements. If and when we begin to discuss licensing a UA technology, these templates represent a starting point for our conversations. We look forward to working with you.

The Arizona Choice: A Clear and Simple Approach to Industry-Sponsored Research
1. The Non-exclusive License
Royalty-free, with the option for exclusivity
For the entire cost of conducting the research, the industrial sponsor receives a commercial non-exclusive, royalty-free license to the project IP, without the right to sublicense. The sponsor agrees to cover the costs related to protecting the IP and is granted a time-limited option to negotiate for an exclusive license based on commercially reasonable terms.
- Up-front commercial license
- No initial/extra fees
- No pre-negotiated license terms
- Reporting and diligence only required for exclusive license
2. The Exclusive License
- Known Investment
- No uncertainties
- No diligence
