Managing rights

Successful trade marks, patents, designs, and copyright are valuable assets that can be traded at any time. They can be sold (transferred) or permission for use can be given to others (e.g. for a licensing fee or for free).

We advise you to have licensing agreements, and, above all, rights transfers, entered into the register. This is particularly beneficial in case of a conflict because anyone of good faith may assume that the register is correct.

Licensing agreements must be carefully negotiated and fixed. An attorney specialising in licensing contracts can help you.
