Licensing Contract Templates Used by Fortune 500 Brands
Excellent templates–like ours which are modeled after Fortune 500 brand owners–can give you a striking edge by providing clause-by-clause examples of advantageous positions.
In addition, you can save thousands in legal fees. Yes, you’ll use attorneys to review the final contract but why involve them early on when they can’t really help you?
While attorneys are indispensable in addressing the legal language involved with clauses like reps & warranties and indemnification and infringement they’re probably not going to be familiar enough with licensing agreement terms, including test protocols, authorized channels, approvals and quality controls, to negotiate them properly on your behalf.
You can absolutely use these robust templates as legally binding contracts between two parties –The licensor who owns a copyright, trademark, patent, service mark, trade secret, know-how, or other IP and the Licensee who is receiving a license to use the IP.
Our attorney-drafted Brand License Agreement Template Package includes 2 brand licensing/intellectual property agreements– a shorter, 16-page document for smaller, less complicated contracts and a longer 40-page document for longer more complex agreements. Both are modeled after contracts developed by Newell-Rubbermaid, a leader in brand licensing.
