General Instructions
 Domain Name License Agreement

   This kit includes information and tools that will assist you in drafting a domain name license agreement, licensing the use of a registered domain name.

   A domain name license may be given for a specific duration or may be perpetual (having no termination date), during which the licensee pays the holder a license fee for the use of the URL address.  Once the term of the license is over, all rights in the domain name revert back to the domain name holder.

   Included in this kit is a sample form for drafting a domain name license agreement, along with general instructions explaining the significance and operation of each provision in the agreement.  The kit should be used to draft your own agreement, but you are advised to have a competent copyright attorney review the agreement before you sign.





Step-by-Step Instructions
Domain Name License Agreement

   License Agreements can be extremely complex.  The sample agreement included in this kit is a basic agreement addressing the key elements to licensing a domain name and receiving a fee in return for that license.  If your situation requires treatment of more complex issues, you should consult a competent attorney who can assist you in drafting a more suitable agreement.

Grant of License

   The license granted in this type of agreement spells out the kinds of rights that the licensee will be able to enjoy. When granting a license to a licensee, it is important to state clearly which particular rights will be afforded to the licensee.  Is the license exclusive?  Who retains ownership of the goodwill associated with the domain name?  It is important to specify clearly what rights the licensee will enjoy, thus clearly establishing the scope and boundaries of the license.

Term

   The term of the license agreement, and of the license granted therein, is generally for a fixed period of years, all rights under the copyright will revert back to the licensor.

Payments

   Typically the licensee will pay the licensor a flat fee per year for the use of the domain name.  The payment schedule should be clearly described in the agreement to avoid any future problems.

Licensors Representations and Warranties

   The most basic representation that a licensor will generally be expected to make is that it has the ownership interest in the domain name that it claims to have, and that it therefore has the right to grant the license in the first place.  The terms of the sample agreement below state that the licensor will guarantee theses basic representations by indemnifying the licensee against any damages that the licensee might suffer due to the failure of the licensor to live up to those representations.
