International Trademark Licensing

Wolters Kluwer published the book on International Trademark Licensing, edited by Stojan Arnerstal who is Head of Life Scienes at Vinge.

Diégo Noesen, Jan Janssen and Flip Petillion of the PETILLION firm contributed to the book.

International Trademark Licensing, authored by a team of eminent and experienced attorneys, each representing a particular country, is a chapter-by-chapter comparative overview on the law and application of trademark licensing worldwide – including chapters on such key commercial jurisdictions as the EU Member States, the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil, and Japan. Firms using licensing to exploit and commercialize trademarks internationally are growing manifold. The free flow of goods and services in a globalized market through licensing requires in-depth knowledge of national legal provisions and principles applying to agreements of this type.

What’s in this book:

The contributors analyse legal challenges in detail and furnish pragmatic guidance on licensing issues in their national jurisdiction. Within this framework, each chapter illustrates the following issues and topics:

  • country-specific regulations on trademark licensing;

  • particular legal requirements to be complied with prior to entering into a license agreement;

  • antitrust legislation affecting the scope of a license agreement;

  • breach of a trademark licensing agreement;

  • circumstances under which a breach of contract also constitutes a trademark infringement;

  • permitted extent of non-compete or non-challenge clauses;

  • licensee’s standing to sue third parties for trademark infringement;

  • effect of invalidation or expiry of the licensed trademark on the agreement; and

  • licensee’s right to claim entitlement to goodwill in the trademark, or a right to compensation, for investments made in the trademark.
