Sample IP Agreements

Here we maintain a collection of sample agreements relating to intellectual property transactions. Each agreement is annotated to explain the impact of specific provisions contained in the sample agreements. Please note that these agreements are exemplary; a sample agreement included here may not be ideal for every situation. Use them at your own risk.*

You can use the sample agreements in several ways:

  • Go to the IP Agreement Summaries page  (Login Required) to see a brief summary of each sample agreement, and to access the sample agreements (Word format). This page is useful if you are looking for examples of specific agreements (e.g., "I am trying to craft a material transfer agreement, and I want to see an example.")
  • Go to the Index of Provisions page (Login Required) to see a searchable index of agreement provisions. This page is useful if you are looking for examples of specific agreement provisions (e.g., "I am trying to craft an indemnity provision, and I want to see examples from various agreements.")

* Nothing included in the sample agreements or elsewhere on this site should be considered legal advice on the part of AIPLA or any of its members.

    Join us as our speakers discuss march-in rights and compulsory licenses. Recent events like governmental agencies turning to march-in as a potential means to lower drug pricing or the pandemic have refueled the discussion on compulsory licenses here and in Europe. Our speakers will review the history of the Bayh Dole act as well as compulsory licenses in Europe and provide an overview of recent developments in both jurisdictions. Finally, the speakers touch on the implications and concerns for patent holders and future innovation in the biopharma space here and in Europe.
