Toy Royalty Software & Contracts

Toy Licensing Agreement Basics

1. Royalty is usually a percentage of wholesale sales.

2. Royalty agreements usually include an un-refundable royalty advance against future royalty earnings and a royalty guarantee. If the agreed upon level of royalties is not reached within a period, the difference is owed to the licensor.
