9.1
Are there particular requirements, such as quality control by the licensor, for a trademark licence to be valid?
 
Greece
No, there are no particular requirements concerning the validity of a trademark licence. However, a trademark licence agreement must not be contrary to competition law rules; hence, it may not include clauses that lead to effects such as vertical price fixing of the trademarked goods or services.
