Often clients are licensees stuck in an agreement they want to alter, or they own trademarks and copyrights for services they want to license to others.
If you are a stuck licensee, we can review your agreement and advise on the different loopholes available to you.
If you are looking to license your intellectual property rights, we are here to help you avoid common pitfalls, including providing a naked license, which will void your agreement with your licensee and may invalidate your trademark rights.
COPYRIGHT LICENSING FOR GOODS OR SERVICES
What is a license?
A license is an agreement between parties that describes the rights and responsibilities of the parties.
A licensor is someone who gives a licensee permission to use a trademark or brand or copyright, for financial compensation, and is legally obligated to control the quality of the products or services offered in the license.
Licensing your trademark or copyrights is not brain surgery, but its not easy either. If mistakes are made, they are very expensive to fix. So let’s do it right from day one.
If your licensee operates in multiple states, we recommend creating two independent agreements.
Licensors should register in the states where they do business and confirm that licensees are registered in the state where the services are rendered.
