Taken from the briefing Licensing a Brand Abroad – What Clients and Their Counsel Need to Know recorded February, 2017 in New York.

Licensing a trademark abroad can be fraught with traps for the unwary. Local laws can impact the enforceability of your agreements and unenforceable or voidable agreements can jeopardize your trademark rights. Moreover, certain countries have specific laws that can prevent or impact the collection of royalties.
