Licensing your brands and trade marks

If you allow another company to use your trade marks in accordance with particular terms and conditions, you have entered into a trade mark licence. It may have been a simple agreement to enable you to benefit from an expanded production capacity, or it could be part of an international marketing and distribution agreement involving technical know-how and royalty payments.

Recording a trade mark licence on national trade mark registers can be a valuable safeguard to trade mark owners and can also confer useful rights to licensees too.
