The pros and cons of patent sales

There are several advantages and disadvantages to selling patent. To help you make an informed decision, we list them for you.


  • It’s easy. You have a good idea, apply for a patent and then sell it to a company. You don’t have to worry about it yourself. Patent selling is a good solution when you have few entrepreneurial skills.
  • You have little risk. Because you do not retain the patent yourself, you do not have to deal with litigation.
  • It’s fast. You get early returns on your idea, without having to invest in the realization of your idea in the process.

The drawbacks:

  • It is sometimes difficult to find buyers. Especially when you have an idea for a whole new product.
  • It is sometimes difficult to determine how much to charge for your idea. Of course, PROGEST can advise you on valuation in patent sales.
  • Sold is sold. Would you like to have a say yourself? Then licensing is also a good solution.
