Licenses play a major role for intellectual property rights such as patents, trademarks, designs and copyrights. License agreements relating to intellectual property rights regulate the form in which a licensee may use them.
Our law firm will assist you in negotiating and drafting license agreements.
Licensing of intellectual property can be an effective means of meaningful economic exploitation on the part of the licensor. For the licensee, licensing of intellectual property rights can be of decisive importance for strengthening its own market position.
Conclusion of an agreement
As a rule, a license is agreed by contract. However, the license as such is not regulated in detail by law; rather, a large number of special laws as well as general contract law apply. In order to be protected from unpleasant surprises on the part of both the licensor and the licensee, a large number of legal regulations and aspects must be observed when concluding a license agreement.
