In the design world, it’s not uncommon to encounter companies that operate under different names. A registered company might use a distinct trading name for certain operations. But how does that impact your licensing agreement with YouWorkForThem? You’ve asked, and we’re here to provide clarity on design licensing.
Operational Names and Design Licensing: How It Works
To start, let’s consider an example. Your registered company is “The Red Wagon Co Ltd.” but you trade under “Fire Engine Graphics.” You wonder, “If the license is made out to the registered company, are all products created and sold by Fire Engine Graphics still legally covered by the same license?”
The short and sweet answer is, yes. At YouWorkForThem, the specific entity covering the license for a particular use case isn’t our primary concern. Our priority lies in ensuring that a party appropriately covers the intended use.
Licenses and Different Use Cases: A Scenario
To put it into perspective, imagine an agency purchases a desktop font license for a typeface to do a job for a client. Whether the agency or the client themselves purchases the extension for a Broadcast use in a television campaign, it’s immaterial to us. Our main concern is that the license appropriately covers the intended use.
