DISTRIBUTION AND FRANCHISING
There are several ways of marketing products and services. However, the legal backgrounds to these options differ greatly.
One such option is to make use of distributors or franchisees. Distributors trade for their own account. The risks involved are usually also for their own account. In franchising, the franchisor gives the franchisee a right to use the franchise formula in return for a financial consideration. The best option for marketing a product or service depends on the actual type of product or service.
When engaging in long-term relationships, careful consideration should first be given to which agreements will actually be entered into.
