If a confidentiality or confidentiality agreement has been entered into by the parties and remains valid for the duration of the licence agreement, nothing else is required. If this has not been done, a section dealing with confidentiality conditions may be included in the license agreement. If the previously agreed confidentiality agreement is weak, now is the time to strengthen it and ensure that these conditions in the licensing agreement prevail over previous agreements! The exact delivery language must be indicated. These include intellectual property rights under which the licence is granted: only patent or know-how rights, or both; and exclusive rights, exclusively with the licensee, or not exclusively. This section should also define the concept of exclusivity and/or non-exclusivity and specify whether this right is irrevocable; and if there is a right to sub-licensing.

If you have a provisional patent, i.e.
you have filed a patent instead of granting it to you, it is possible to enter into negotiations with the licensees, although the reduced royalties are probably a condition of the contract.
