Intercompany Trademark License Agreement


As a general rule, an intercompany transfer and licensing agreement provides that all intellectual property rights developed by an operating company (z.B. a trademark, patent, copyrighted work (z.B. Software) and know-how are always automatically transferred to the company of the group that houses the intellectual property rights and know-how of the group`s companies (usually the holding company or a separate IP company). and possibly other intellectual property rights through a “grant back license.” In the case of an intercompany transfer and a licensing agreement, a fee (licence) may also be agreed for the licence under intellectual property rights. This allows for the best coordination of revenues per company within a group. In addition, the use of intercompany transfer and licensing contracts facilitates the provision of (broader) licenses for other operating companies or third parties, facilitates the acquisition of investors and keeps intellectual property rights outside the risk sphere (for example. B in the event of the bankruptcy of an operating company). An intercompany transfer and licensing agreement can also bring tax benefits.
