LESI 2021 LES Royalty Rate & Deal Terms Survey - NOW OPEN
Licensing Executives Society (LES) is updating its surveys for royalty
rates and deal terms in the high technology sector and the life sciences
sector. LES USA-Canada, LESI and other societies have collaborated to
seek broader participation in the surveys -- to ensure that it has a
global reach, accurately reflects licensing trends and is even more
valuable to our community.
THE SURVEY IS NOW OPEN. And, LES needs your help and participation.
These reports are one of the most publicly visible and cited LES work
products. And, more input provides better results and better benchmarks
for the licensing community to model against; but we must get the word
out. The survey results will be available in September. Every survey
response remains confidential.
An FAQ sheet is available here with more detailed info, but here is what you need to know:
1. The survey deadline is August 30.
Please complete the survey by August 30. Use this link: survey opt-in form. Those
interested can select the survey they want to complete – High Tech,
Life Sciences, or both -- and they will receive a unique link to the
survey form. We also urge you to share this link with
those outside of LES. Again, a wide response makes the survey results
most useful to you and others in the industry.
2. The results will allow you to better benchmark existing and proposed royalties.
The results are unique and can be extremely useful in license
negotiations and other IP transactions because they provide data for the
industry that is otherwise unavailable. The data from this survey will
be analyzed along with the data from the last several surveys conducted
by LES – so the resulting reports will offer a unique view of the
licensing landscape during the past ten years.
3. Survey results available Sept. 2021.
A preliminary analysis and report will be made at the LES USA-Canada 2021 Annual Meeting –
which will take place the week of Sept. 27, 2021. The final analysis
and report will be available to LES members at no cost and to others for
a fee. LES membership dues and sponsorship contributions are supporting
100% of the costs of this project.
4. Every response is confidential.
LES has again commissioned Vault Consulting, a leading
association research organization, and experts in confidential surveys,
to administer this survey and maintain the confidentiality of the
information submitted. As in the past, Vault will not provide LES or
anyone else with any individual survey data or other information that
can identify individuals, individual answers, or company names. No
product names and no company names are collected or reported.
Information on Vault Consulting and how they conduct such confidential
surveys can be found at http://vaultconsulting.com/. If
you have any questions or concerns about the survey or the
confidentiality of your information, feel free to email Vault at [email protected]. You may also contact LES USA-Canada directly at [email protected] or email me at [email protected].
5. Thank you!
On behalf of John Paul and the LESI Board of Directors, LES
USA-Canada, and all LES members: Thank you in advance for participating
and supporting this new edition of the survey. Your participation will
make a difference in the success of the LES Royalty Rate & Deal
