In franchise business the franchisor allows the franchisee to use its trade mark, trade name,
logos, industrial designs, symbols, emblems and designations in return for royalty related
payments. In this rapidly expanding form of doing business, different jurisdictions regulate
it differently: by enacting franchise specific regulations; developing court practices or
through general contracts provision that protect. Such regulations are primarily meant to
protect the franchisee from the information asymmetry and financial and technical power of
franchisor. Franchise business regulations and general contract provisions jointly regulate
contemporary national and international franchise business.
