About the Program: 

What do Beatles t-shirts and Disney coffee mugs have in common?  Both tell the story of brand licensing!

Brand licensing is the process by which brand owners allow other businesses to use their trademarked creations. Brand owners and their licensees face ethical and legal challenges when deciding to license a specific brand onto certain merchandise. These challenges can be exacerbated by advanced technologies that open businesses to new markets and new marketing opportunities but can also create risks such as privacy violations and security breaches. This event will showcase a variety of participants in the licensing chain who will discuss the ethical challenges the licensing industry is currently facing.
