As the private sector moves into outer space, the limitations of IP regimes based on geographical borders become ever more apparent. Whether outer space is the site of invention or an act of infringement, or it’s the development and use of technologies peculiar to space travel, traditional approaches to IP and licensing are lacking. The manner in which the space industry is addressing these challenges is instructive to those dealing with more earthly IP and licensing issues. Director Vidal has led the way in shining a light on the future of IP and licensing in space, and is eager to share her thoughts and hear from stakeholders about how to promote innovation through effective, practical innovations in IP protection in this exciting new realm.
Following a fireside chat with Director Vidal, a panel of IP experts with experience in government, academia, and industry will discuss the practical implications and their strategic approaches under today’s global IP regime, and share their thoughts as to how the current regime might better serve industry and innovation in space.
Physical Science Sector Meeting and Royalty Rate Survey Discussion
The Physical Science Sector will meet to hear a deeper dive into the results of the Physical Sciences Royalty Rates and Deal Terms Survey from Ann Cannoni and Nicki Kennedy, provide updates on sector activities from Shayne Phillips, and lead into sector networking.
Come and hear the results of the 2022 LES Physical Sciences (formerly CEEM) Royalty Rates & Deal Terms Survey at a workshop hosted by the coordinators of the survey.
This survey has not been run since 2010 and the data generated from the 2022 survey will be added to historical data from past surveys to provide LES members with not only an update on the current trends in the market, but also a retrospective look at how licensing practices have changed over the years. Physical Sciences includes: Environmental Sciences, Chemicals, Physics, Earth Sciences, Manufacturing, Energy, Materials, and other physical sciences or engineering areas that do not fit in the High Tech or Life Sciences sectors. The survey reports help explain how licensing deals are structured and why, and they also show the rationale behind the licensing of parties and what specific licensing features are chosen and used. This information provides a valuable benchmarking tool that IP and licensing professionals depend on to deliver value to their organizations. Use of the survey information also extends to lawyers, corporate finance and investment professionals, and beyond.
