Tailormade licensing – no one size fits all

Marie McMorrow and Michelle Davies will discuss how to make your licence work best for you and create optimal value for your business, covering:

  • How to best structure your licence scope
  • What financial structures can be applied
  • How to value your technology
  • Other strategies you can consider including licensing pools or the use of defensive aggregators
  • Negotiation top tips and points to remember
