for Sponsored Research Agreements and Clinical Trial Agreements
Use this Checklist to analyze a Sponsor-offered intellectual property rights clauses, determine what problems, if any, the clauses contain, and determine the editorial changes necessary to conform the clauses to the requirements of the Regents’ Rules and Regulations related to Intellectual Property. Because no two deals are identical, the best language for one transaction may not be the same as that for another transaction. If in doubt, please contact the Office of General Counsel with any questions.
The answer to this Question will determine which portion of the Checklist to complete.
Is your study a Clinical Trial?
If NO, this s a Sponsored Research Study/Agreement. You may offer the Sponsor any of Clauses 1 through 9 (Clause 5 is probably the most comprehensive). If the Sponsor accepts one of these clauses as is, you are finished with the analysis of your intellectual property rights clause. If you are analyzing a Sponsor-offered clause, complete the Sponsored Research Study/Agreement section.
