St. Charles Business Licensing Lawyers
Corporate Licensing and Distribution in Illinois
Licensing and distribution are two ways in which to protect and grow your business. A distribution agreement is generally a contract between a producer, manufacturer, or importer and an independent contractor who distributes or sells the products. A distributorship can be exclusive or non-exclusive and can range in support and obligations, as well as length of time. Licensing, on the other hand, refers to the grant of rights for one person or company to use the intellectual property of another. This could include trademarks, images, names, logos, copyrighted content, know-how, patent, fictional characters, or other intangible property. A licensor will receive revenue in the form of royalties or another kind of payment. The licensee seeks permission to use the licensed property. Licenses can also be exclusive or non-exclusive and subject to numerous restrictions and limitations.
