Licence and Distribution Contract

Multimedia Product Licence and Distribution Agreement


If you wish to use this document in a scenario that involves personal data, standard clauses for data protection and data processing are available in our GDPR & Data Protection Group.

This Multimedia Product Licence and Distribution Agreement is designed for use in a business relationship where a Company producing computer hardware and / or software products wishes to appoint a Distributor within a certain territory for certain of its products.

In its default form this agreement is non-exclusive, which in most cases best suits such a relationship; however it can be made exclusive simply by deleting all “non” references.

The template provides for a number of important factors such as the duration of the Agreement, the obligations of both parties, territory, and liability.

In such relationships it may be necessary for the Distributor’s representatives or staff to be trained in the use of the products that they are selling. In light of this, the agreement contains a clause and accompanying schedule specifically addressing such training. In the event that no training is necessary, this clause and schedule can be removed without any other effect on the agreement. It should however be borne in mind that subsequent references to other clauses contained within clauses 7, 13, 15, 21 and 35 will need to be changed as a result of Clause 5 being removed. (Clause 6 then becomes 5 and so on.) Schedules subsequent to the training schedule will need to be renumbered manually.
