9.3
Can a licensor lose its rights in a trademark by failing to comply with its obligations under the licence, such as maintaining quality control?
 
Australia
Yes - if the licensor does not actually exercise control over the licensee and is not itself using the trademark, then use by the licensee may be insufficient to qualify as use by the licensor and the registration may therefore be susceptible to removal for non-use, where such non-use has continued for three years.
