Abstract

The subject of the commercialization of University's Research often associated with issues like roles and functions of the office technology transfer, incentives for researchers, licensing procedures, mechanism of commercialization like spin-offs and start-ups. The main purpose of this study is to provide some explanations of the principle of undue influence as gentle legal precautions for researchers in the context of commercialization of university research based on some decided English cases. Questions as to what extent researchers in universities are aware of their vulnerability when giving consent to terms and provisions in the commercial contracts like licensing agreements as well as on students part in circumstances where the assignment of student IP rights are concern or issues of undue influence are rarely exposed and debated in the context of technology transfer in universities.
