Licensing International Japan Holds Licensing Advice Clinic

Licensing International Japan

As part of an ongoing commitment to offer licensing advice to its members and the wider Japanese licensing community,  Licensing International Japan organized a one-on-one licensing advice clinic on 21 June that focused on general licensing topics. The fully booked clinic sessions, free for Licensing International Japan members and ¥5,000 for non-members, were held by Fumihiko “Pochi” Kusama, president of Brandog Co., Ltd.  Kusama is a veteran licensing consultant and agent, previous managing director of LIMA Japan from 2002 to 2012, author of Japan’s most comprehensive book on licensing and has previously held a visiting professor position at the Tokyo University of Science focusing on IP matters.

Topics covered by the clinic included how to initiate a licensing program from scratch, license contract issues, the necessity of trademark protection, how to become a licensor/licensing agent and how to approach IP owners for licenses for hot properties.
