We respect ownership of intellectual property rights (IP): your IP remains yours; ours remains ours. What we create together during the event will be our joint IP (yours and ours). In such case we commit together to a 3 months exclusivity period to negotiate a potential agreement, such as a JDA. This period can be extended if partners enter into a JDA development trajectory. If one of the partners indicates within the 3 months period that it has no interest to negotiate further, the shared IP will be allocated to the other party. If neither party indicates that it has an interest to negotiate further, the shared IP will become available for both parties to use freely.
You need to be aware that in case you do share information you were not allowed to share, we cannot be held responsible for damages resulting from a claim for misappropriation or infringement of third party rights based on our possession or use of the information submitted by you or the possession or use thereof by any of our affiliates.
Following your submission, we may invite you to further participate in the three day event. At that stage we will communicate clearly what terms and conditions will apply.
Participation - New IP
If neither party indicates that it has an interest to negotiate a subsequent agreement, the shared IP will become available for both parties to use freely, without accounting to the other party.
