Transfers and licensing

  • Transfers (transfers and name changes)

    Transfers allow the applicant/owner to sell the application/protection right of an invention or just change its name.

  • Licences

    Licensing of inventions allows the applicant to authorise third parties to exploit their invention, without changing the ownership of the protection right.
