If the licence agreement is exclusive to a licensee and the licensee does not provide the alleged performance during the negotiation process, this would be a bad agreement, given that the patent owner would have to accept meagre results and the patented technology could not, because of its exclusivity, grant the licence to others. The agreement should allow the patent holder to terminate the agreement before the expiry of five years. If a Contracting Party may terminate for any reason or no reason, this is a right of termination « for convenience ». Since most people make agreements to make the future more predictable, neither party ever has an interest in giving the other a right of termination for convenience.
