EMMA policy on licensing and use restriction

Policy on licensing and use restriction

EMMA is committed to advancing biomedical research and makes every effort to distribute mouse strains that are unencumbered by license restrictions. However, some institutions and companies have created genetically engineered strains or have developed patented technology that has been used to create genetically-engineered mice and require that users obtain licenses to use those strains. To expedite distribution of new strains EMMA asks users to work directly with the institutions or companies requiring licenses to obtain user licenses. A license agreement is required for EMMA strains using 'TET-System' technology.

 

Licenses for strains using 'TET-System' technology

Not-for-profit and academic research institutions are granted an automatic license to use the TET-System only for internal, academic research purposes with the purchase of this product, which license specifically excludes the right to sell, or otherwise transfer, the TET-System or its component parts to third parties. In accepting this license, all users acknowledge that the TET-System is experimental in nature, and that the product will not be used in humans. TET Systems Holding makes no warranties, express or implied of any kind, and hereby disclaims all warranties, representations or guarantees of any kind as to the TET-System, patents or products. For-profit entities are required to obtain a license from TET Systems Holding prior to purchasing these reagents or using them for any purpose. EMMA partners are required by licensing agreements to submit a report of all purchasers of the TET controllable expression systems to TET Systems Holding.
