This agreement on know-how and technical assistance provides for precisely such a situation. This document, designed to be used alongside a manufacturing license, provides for the granting of a know-how license (in all forms indicated) to the licensee and the provision of technical assistance to the purchaser in the manufacture of a particular product (or product). A standard license for manufacturing in combination with this agreement is also available. In exchange for a single initial fee, the owner of the invention (designated in this document as “manufacturer”) makes the know-how available. With regard to technical assistance, the manufacturer invoices the licensee in accordance with the agreed tariff structure. In these relationships, the importance of know-how should not be underestimated. Making the specifications of an invention available to someone is often not enough to produce that invention itself. Since know-how is an important and valuable asset in itself, it is important to control the use of this information. What is provided under the headings “know-how” and “technical assistance” is an issue that must be decided and agreed upon between the parties. As such, they remain largely undefined in the text of the treaty and can be fully defined in timetables.
