It`s also a great way to test whether a product can be marketed in the U.S. without taking too many risks. Remember your intellectual property: if you appoint a distributor, you also grant a license to use your intellectual property for distribution. You basically give them access to your most sensitive assets. It is allowed to use your domain name, logo and trademarks. If these issues are not explicitly addressed in the agreement, it can lead to situations where your trader takes possession of your intellectual property and effectively locks you out of the area. Like other commercial agreements, it is essential that an international distribution agreement clearly identifies the responsibilities of each party. The supplier and distributor must be clear about their obligations, which must be fulfilled in accordance with the conditions of the transaction.
