The licensor can limit:

  • the right to sub-license.

If the licence agreement is silent on the term of the licence, the licence shall be presumed valid for five years. In the case of an exclusive licence, the licensor cannot use the invention in the manner and scope covered by the licence unless the licence agreement provides otherwise.
