Definition of Technology Transfer Agreement


Technology Transfer Agreement means an agreement evidenced by a writing (e.g., invoice, purchase order, contract, etc.) that assigns or licenses a copyright interest in tangible personal property for the purpose of reproducing and selling other property subject to the copyright interest. A technology transfer agreement also means a written agreement that assigns or licenses a patent interest for the right to manufacture and sell property subject to the patent interest, or a written agreement that assigns or licenses the right to use a process subject to a patent interest. A technology transfer agreement does not mean an agreement for the transfer of any tangible personal property manufactured pursuant to a technology transfer agreement, nor an agreement for the transfer of any property derived, created, manufactured, or otherwise processed by property manufactured pursuant to technology transfer agreement. Example No. 1: Company X holds a copyright in certain tangible artwork. Company X transfers (temporarily or otherwise) its artwork to Company Y and, in writing, transfers (temporarily or otherwise) a copyright interest to Company Y authorizing it to reproduce and sell tangible personal property subject to Company X's copyright interest in the artwork. Company X's transfer of artwork and a copyright interest to Company Y constitutes a technology transfer agreement. Company Y's sales of tangible personal property containing reproductions of Company X's artwork do not constitute a technology transfer agreement. Example No. 2: Company X holds patents for widgets and the process for manufacturing such widgets. Company X, in writing, transfers (temporarily or otherwise) its patent interests to sell widgets and the process used to manufacture such widgets to Company Y. Company X's transfer of its patent interests to Company Y constitutes a technology transfer agreement. Company Y's sale or storage, use, or other consumption of any widgets that it manufactures does not constitute a technology transfer agreement. Company Y's sale or storage, use, or other consumption of any tangible personal property used to manufacture widgets also does not constitute a technology transfer agreement. Example No. 3: Company X manufactures and leases a patented medical device to Company Y. As part of the lease of the medical device, Company X also transfers to Company Y, in writing, a separate patent interest in a process external to the medical device that involves the use, application or manipulation of the medical device. Company X charges a monthly rentals payable for the equipment as well as a separate charge for each time the separate patented process external to the medical device is performed by Company Y. Company X's lease of the medical device to Company Y to perform the separately patented process is not a technology transfer agreement and tax applies to the entire rentals payable for the medical equipment. Company X's transfer of its separate patent interest for the right to perform the separate patented process external to the medical device is a technology transfer agreement. Company X's separate charges to Company Y for the right to perform the separate patented process external to the medical device are not subject to tax provided they relate to the right to perform the separate patented process, are not for the lease of the medical device, and represent a reasonable charge for the right to perform the separate patented process external to the medical device. Where the separate charges for the right to perform the separate patented process relate to the patented technology embedded in the internal design, assembly or operation of the medical device, Company X's separate charges for the right to perform the separate patented process are not pursuant to a technology transfer agreement and are instead part of the rentals payable from the lease of the medical device.
