A potential franchisor must thus verify that any essential intellectual property in connection to the company is secured appropriately before beginning the franchising agreement.

The protection of all the franchise’s intellectual property is very essential, both by legal means and via a franchising agreement between the franchisee and the franchisor, as explained below.

IP may assist an enterprise to do better, or it can establish a new enterprise.
