Q18. What types of licensing are available?

A18. There are two types of licenses; one is non-exclusive and the other is exclusive. The exclusive license must be registered at the JPO because of its exclusivity. If a licensor owns two rights to a Principal design and its Related design, he or she must grant an exclusive license at the same time to one licensee covering the two design rights (Art. 27).
