INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY (IP)
StretchSense owns all IP related to StretchSense sensing elements and circuits (including technology and IP relating to sensing element design, sensor array design, cabling, connectors, tracks and termination points, sensing integrated circuits, sub-circuits, and circuits developed and/or supplied by StretchSense), sensing algorithms and all embedded firmware used to control the acquisition, processing and/or transmission of sensor data generated by StretchSense sensing elements and circuits, all embedded firmware and software used to sense, output, and/or control the operation of the StretchSense sensing elements and circuits, and all technology and IP relating to the manufacture and/or quality control of the forgoing, including mechanical, electronic or adhesive materials, systems and methods for attaching StretchSense sensing elements and circuits to a structure (collectively Core IP); all StretchSense garment designs (including material specifications, patterns, aesthetic and functional features, and garment assembly instructions), all technology and IP relating to physical placement and layout of StretchSense sensing elements and circuits and Core IP, and all design files or documents containing technical information relating to the design and function of a circuit (including an integrated circuit), enclosure, garment or sensing technology layout or illustration, including CAD representations, mechanical drawings, schematics, datasheets, specifications, bills of material and process instructions, including the drawings, diagrams, or CAD files that we develop StretchSense reference circuits (collectively Enabling IP); and all StretchSense proprietary software (including any software, firmware, API, SDK, for communication with StretchSense Sensing elements and/or circuits, or any software, firmware, API, or SDK for processing, interpreting, analysing data generated by StretchSense sensing elements and/or circuits, provided as a pre-compiled library or application or similar (collectively Proprietary Software), and all StretchSense reference software provided as source code, that is provided or otherwise made available by StretchSense as reference or example software, excluding any third party software); (collectively Reference Software). A limited license to Core IP integrated into items purchased or otherwise received from StretchSense is provided solely to the extent necessary to use, display, distribute, perform, offer for sale, sell, export, store, or import those same items provided that, in the case of Core IP that utilises DEAP technology licensed from Parker Hannifin Corporation (as further described below), such license is, unless otherwise agreed in writing by StretchSense, limited to evaluation and application validation purposes, and commercial purposes in the consumer electronics, motion capture and augmented/virtual reality, and sports and fitness industries. A limited license to use, display, reproduce, distribute, perform, create derivative works of, make, have made, offer for sale, sell, export, store, import and otherwise make use of Enabling IP solely in conjunction with items purchased from StretchSense is incorporated in the purchase price of said items. License to use Proprietary Software is subject to accepting of the terms of StretchSense’s End User License Agreement (EULA) which is available on request from StretchSense. License to use, display, reproduce, distribute, perform, create derivative works of, make, have made, offer for sale, sell, export, store, import and otherwise make use of Reference Software is provided under the terms of the StretchSense Reference Software License.
StretchSense has licensed technology from Parker Hannifin Corporation and from Auckland UniServices Limited:
Parker Hannifin Corporation
StretchSense products that utilise certain dielectric electro-active polymer (DEAP) technology are manufactured and supplied under license from the Quick Coupling Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, Minneapolis, MN, USA (“Parker”). Such license enables StretchSense to manufacture and supply Parker DEAP transducer products generally for evaluation and application validation purposes, and commercially for consumer electronics, motion capture and augmented/virtual reality, and sports and fitness industries. Commercial use in other industries is subject to Parker’s prior consent.
Auckland UniServices Limited
StretchSense products that utilise certain sensor and dielectric elastomer generator technologies are manufactured and supplied under license from Auckland UniServices Limited in Auckland, New Zealand (“UniServices”). These licensed technologies originally being created by the Biomimetics Lab at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. Such license enables StretchSense to manufacture and supply sensor and dielectric elastomer generator products for evaluation, application validation, and commercial purposes for all fields.
