IP & Royalty

Any form of intellectual property - be it a trademark, copyright, patent or brand - can be valued by assessing the amount that other parties will pay to buy or license it. When licensing intellectual property, a royalty rate must be agreed between the brand owner (the licensor) and the party licensing the brand (the licensee). Royalty rates can vary significantly, depending on the status of the brand in the market and the nature of the agreement.

Many business models are based on licence agreements, which are commonplace in the retail, food, fashion and travel industries. Choosing to license a brand can expand brand recognition for new products in existing markets, which essentially capitalises on successes in other product categories.
