APPENDIX (I) Licensing
Image of page 5
A licence establishes a customer’s rights to the intellectual property of an entity. Licences of intellectual property may include, but are not limited to, licences of any of the following: (a) software and technology; (b) motion pictures, music and other forms of media and entertainment; (c) franchises; and (d) patents, trademarks and copyrights. An entity’s determination of whether a license is a right to use versus right to access is based on meeting specific criteria relating to whether the customer can direct the use of, and obtain substantially all the benefits from the license at the point in time the license is granted. The customer can direct the use of and obtain substantially all the benefits from the license if, for example, the underlying IP is not significantly affected by the entity’s ongoing activities. Revenue for a right to use license is recognized at a point in time whereas revenue for a right to access to license is recognized overtime. An entity’s determination of whether a license is a right to use versus right to access is based on the classification of its intellectual property underlying the license as either functional or symbolic.
