Product Description: A complete, hands-on guide to developing and implementing effective technology licensing programs

How to License Technology outlines a step-by-step approach to developing and implementing effective licensing programs in technology-based companies. Written for both inventors and corporate managers, it takes readers from idea to deal in eight, concise, easy-to-follow chapters that cover all aspects of the licensing process. With extensive experience both as a developer and a licensing manager, Robert C. Megantz brings together a wealth of insider information about how licensing has succeeded (and failed) in several high-tech companies and describes strategies that have proven to be effective with both start-up and established companies.

The first complete, practical, step-by-step guide through the entire licensing process

  • In-depth, real-life case studies help you to see, firsthand, how licensing works in a variety of settings
  • Covers all practical aspects of both licensing "out" your property to others and licensing "in" from outside sources
  • Provides a gold mine of expert advice and guidance on marketing research, licensing strategies, deal making, negotiating tactics, managing an ongoing relationship between licensee and licensor
  • And more

Intellectual property can be a company's most valuable asset. But simply owning intellectual property is no guarantee of success. This is especially true among technology-based industries, in which technology developers need to find the most effective ways to leverage their intellectual property, and technology users need to understand how to most effectively obtain the intellectual property they need.

In today's volatile, fragmented technology marketplace, licensing is fast becoming the intellectual property strategy of choice. It affords owners a viable means of maximizing revenue, while providing borrowers with cost-effective, relatively risk-free access to the intellectual property of others. But whether licensing-in or licensing-out, the process is a complex one, involving, among other things, extensive market research, identifying prospects to sell or buy intellectual property, negotiating the best possible deal, and successfully managing the relationship.

Until now, there have been no how-to guides offering clear advice and guidance through the entire licensing process. Focusing on the special needs of technology-based industries, How to License Technology arms readers with a total blueprint for developing and implementing effective technology licensing programs. Written in a practical, down-to-earth style and using numerous real-life case studies to illustrate how licensing works in various settings, it takes readers from idea to deal in eight easy-to-understand steps. How to License Technology thoroughly explains the various licensing options now available and covers all practical aspects of the licensing process, including:

  • Marketing: how to conduct market research and how to market technology
  • Licensing strategies: all key considerations involved in developing the most beneficial licensing strategies for owners and users alike
  • Deal making: comprehensive coverage of contractual terms and negotiating tactics
  • Managing an ongoing relationship between licensee and licensor: in-depth discussions of quality control, maintenance, reversion of rights, and more

The first complete, practical guide to licensing written exclusively for technology-based industries, How to License Technology is an indispensable resource for business executives, inventors, licensing managers, in-house legal counsel, marketing and administrative personnel, valuation experts and appraisers, and other professional technological consultants.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
