Intellectual Property- Licensing in Europe

Licensing in Europe

If your business is involved in licensing-in or licensing-out rights in technology or other intellectual property rights, you need to bear in mind EU law which can affect such transactions, as agreements which have the potential to effect trade within the EU.

The easiest way to avoid such problems is to ensure that the proposed agreement only contains terms that are acceptable under the ‘block exemption’ that relates to the type of agreement in question. Compliance with a block exemption allows parties safely to enter into an agreement that might otherwise not comply with EU competition law. There is a block exemption that covers licensing.
