How Do I License the Rights to My Federally Registered Trademark?

Date: 08/27/2010 | Category: Start a Franchise | No comments

If you plan on selling franchises in New York‚ you will probably want to license the rights to your federally registered trademarks. By licensing these rights‚ you will allow your franchisees to use your trademarks in connection with their goods and services. To draft your trademark licensing agreement‚ you can get the professional help of a New York business lawyer.

When you write your licensing agreement‚ you can also establish the terms of use for your federally registered trademarks. For instance‚ you can prohibit the use of your trademark in some business practices‚ while mandating their use in others. This will allow you to maintain complete control over your federally registered trademark.

If‚ however‚ a business franchisee violates the terms of your licensing agreement‚ you may take legal action in response to the violation. For instance‚ if a franchise uses your business name to sell unauthorized products or services‚ this may result in a violation of your licensing agreement. Therefore‚ your response may be to file a trademark infringement lawsuit.

To file a lawsuit‚ you have the option of seeking the help of a New York business lawyer. A lawyer may do what it takes to protect your federally registered trademark.
