Depending on how the rights of the first intellectual property refusal are formulated, they can lead to practical difficulties, particularly in the situation described above in the second point. Negotiations on the granting of intellectual property rights can take months and generally require a degree of confidence in the potential value of technology and IP rights and how the parties will cooperate within the framework of the agreement. A practical question arises when a party to the negotiations must decide when it tells the other party that a third party has the right to refuse the same rights.

Patent holders grant potential sub-licenses a conditional option to obtain an exclusive patent and technology licence to acquire, do, use, sell and import an exclusive Schedule A licence („contingent option”). The contingency option can only be exercised by the potential under-licensee if the patent holder and potential grantee do not execute a license agreement as defined in Section 4.1 during or before the end of the exclusive licensing period, as defined to that effect. In exercising the quota option, the patent holder negotiates a licence in good faith in accordance with schedule A conditions and replaces the patent holder with the „standard pharm” used in that document.
