Some licenses granted by U.S. universities must not be exclusive, either because federal requirements require it, or because the research has had several sponsors. In certain circumstances, U.S. universities are prepared to grant an exclusive license to a company. However, it is important to ensure, first, that the scope of the licence is limited to the application of a commercial interest to the company (so that university researchers can continue to research other applications and develop other licensing options) and, second, the university intends to ensure that the company is careful in monitoring marketing opportunities (a due diligence clause is normally inserted into the licensing agreements to allow the university to terminate the licence if the company does not take the promised steps for the development or marketing of the product).

The official legal notice of the registration of the American trademark is the letter R within a circle: ®, Reg. U.S. Pat. Tm. Off., or Registered in U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Many companies use informal brands such as brand, TM, brand, SM or Service Mark, alongside words or other symbols that are considered protected trademarks. The copyright message consists of the letter C in a circular symbol: © or the word copr. or copyright, the name of the copyright holder and the year of the first publication. If it is a series of confidential information, the safest thing to do is to provide the recipient with only a few of the confidential information and to retain the most valuable, sensitive and confidential parts of the information.
