Seminar "The Essentials of Design Royalty Contracts”


Professions Committee Chair:Terunaga Yoshida



A template for a "Royalty Agreement" will be released by a joint contract study group of the JIDA Profession (formerly Profession) Committee and the Japan Benshiryoku-kai. Royalties are paid in proportion to the number of products sold, as opposed to general commission transactions, which are settled on a case-by-case basis. This is a valuable opportunity to hear about the contract template and also to hear about the actual application and tips for using it. The event will be held in a hybrid format of online and real-life (on-site participation). We look forward to your participation.


This seminar has ended, but more seminars will be scheduled in the future.
