Establishment and protection of intellectual property from Gaze Burt Lawyers
Gaze Burt Lawyers believes that the first step in setting up a sound franchise system is the establishment of a formal documented agreement. The legal – franchisor business is equipped to make these agreements that benefit both parties and provide a mode of sound communication. The most important aspect of these agreements from the intellectual property provider is the all round protection of the intellectual property base. The intellectual property base consists of trade marks, confidentiality, copyrights, logos and many more.
Gaze Burt Lawyers also carries out legal audits to inspect documents such as those of advertising and promotion before setting up the franchise. Franchisors and franchisees working with the intellectual property provider must ensure that all these documents comply with all Australian and international agreements of franchising.
The legal – franchisor business sets up pre-contracts that underlines the important points of the franchise system such as protection of intellectual property. These pre-contracts also state that intellectual property must also be protected overseas in the event of international trading and franchising. 22.04.2008
