Those entering into a licensing agreement should consult a lawyer, as there are complexities that are difficult to understand for those who do not have a deep understanding of intellectual property rights. One of the most important elements of a licensing agreement is the financial agreement. Payments made by the licensee to the licensor are generally made in the form of guaranteed minimum payments and royalties on sales. Royalties are typically between 6 and 10 percent, depending on the licensee`s property, experience, and sophistication. Not all licensors need guarantees, although some experts recommend that licensors receive as much compensation as possible in advance. In some cases, licensors use warranties as the basis for renewing a license agreement. Where the customer satisfies the minimum turnover figures, the contract shall be renewed; Otherwise, the licensor will have the opportunity to terminate the relationship.
Another important element of a licensing agreement sets the timing of the agreement. Many licensors insist on a strict market release date for products licensed to external manufacturers. Finally, it is not in the best interests of the licensor to grant a license to a company that never markets the product. The license agreement also contains provisions relating to the duration of the contract, renewal options and termination conditions.

They may, for example, insist on the guarantee that the licensor holds the rights to the immovable property or they may insert a clause prohibiting the licensor from competing directly with the licensed property in certain markets.

In a typical license agreement, the licensor undertakes to make available to the licensee intellectual property rights such as the licensor`s technology, trademark or know-how.

A royalty is a current royalty paid for the licensor`s right to use the intellectual property. Licensing agreements cover a wide range of known situations. For example, a retailer could enter into an agreement with a professional sports team to develop, produce and sell merchandise bearing the sports team`s logo.
