Points for discussion:

  • How are know-how and other valuable but non protectable results managed internally (know-how disclosure procedures?)
    • How can originators be identified?
    • How are internal disclosures managed?
    • Unlike patent disclosures (Invention Disclosure Form - IDF), know-how disclosures will/might be made at the time of exploitation (risk of litigation between originators)?
    • Different type of intellectual property: know-how (e.g. non-patentable methods), biological materials (antibodies, cell lines, models), semiconductor topographies, etc.
  • How are the creators rewarded? Difference from the patent, software practice (“1/3 rule”)?
  • Licensing practice? Difference from patent, software?
    • Special provisions required?
    • Difference in the amount of royalties?
