License contracts in Spain may cover industrial property rights (patents, utility models, trademarks), intellectual property rights (rights of use for literary, scientific, artistic works, or software), know-how, or other uses of technology. Spanish regulations allow the parties a wide range of freedom to negotiate terms and conditions of the agreement.
There are many clauses common to this type of contract, such as:
* Exclusivity clauses, sometimes including exclusive purchase obligations;
* Measures to limit the licensor's commercial activity;
* Confidentiality and non-competition obligations;
* Obligations relating to improvements and innovations (this includes updating the rights granted to the licensee and communicating to the licensor innovations developed by the licensee);
* Indemnities in case of breach of contract by one party.
