Ready-to-Sign Instructions

The Ready-to-Sign Agreements are for technologies with standard terms and conditions. In order to receive a license, including tangible property in some cases, please follow the steps below:

  1. Choose the technology your company would like to license.
  2. Download the license agreement file.
  3. Print out two copies of the license agreement.
  4. Fill in all underlined blank sections of the agreement. Please also fill in the LICENSEES notices section with your company's address and the appropriate contact.
  5. Have the appropriate officer of the company sign the agreements.
  6. Send both original signature agreements to the following address:
    Office of Technology Licensing
    3000 El Camino Real, Bldg 5, Ste 300
    Palo Alto CA 94306-1106
    Attention: Director

OTL will sign both agreements, keep one for OTL's records and return the other original to the address and contact noted on the agreement. At the same time, OTL will generate an invoice for the upfront fee. Once the payment of the upfront fee is received by OTL, any tangible property associated with the agreement will be sent to the licensed company.

If you have any questions about completing the agreement, please send us an e-mail or call (650) 723-0651. The favorable licensing royalties included in the Ready-to-Sign Agreements apply only if no negotiation is required. If you would like to discuss changes to the Ready-to-Sign agreement, there will be an increase in licensing royalties.

Thank you for your interest in licensing Stanford technology.
