The distributor is an independent contractor and not an employee, representative, partner, partner or joint venture with or by suppliers. Neither the distributor nor the supplier have the right to enter into contracts or commitments on behalf of or on behalf of the other, or to engage them in any way, unless authorized in this Agreement. G. The obligations of the recipient party under this section 6 remain in the event of termination or non-renewal of that contract for a period of [number of years] of years. In order to avoid any doubt, the distributor`s client and negotiator lists are considered protected information under this agreement. Another important part of the granting of rights is the list of rights excluded or restricted. In some cases, rights may be implied if they are not mentioned, so if a particular activity is not allowed, it should be included in the contract. There is a territorial clause where rights are granted in the world. This could go hand in hand with the exclusivity above; for example, there could be an exclusive license in the United States, but in the rest of the world it could not be done exclusively.

This would allow the developer to enter into contracts with other publishers outside the United States. It is important to ensure that, when signing several sales or publication contracts, the rights do not overlap so that either distributor becomes an infringer. As a general rule, the agreement contains a guarantee clause stating that the rights granted can indeed be granted. Clauses like this will be discussed next week in the second segment of this series. A. Subject to the terms of this exclusive distribution agreement, the supplier designates the distributor and the distributor accepts such a designation and undertakes to act as the exclusive distributor of supplier products (defined below) in the following geographical area (the “territory”): this agreement and the attached exhibition (expressly included in this reference) contain the full and comprehensive agreement between the parties with respect to the purpose of this Agreement.
