The Licensing Letter (TLL) is an exclusive networking and information resource that unlocks vast opportunities in the $150 billion — plus licensing business. 

You can rely on TLL for:

  • Comprehensive listings of new property availabilities, assignments and licenses granted;
  • TLL's renowned network of contacts and connections. Every month TLL tracks hundreds of deals around the world and provides you with up-to-the-minute listings plus contact name, title, phone and email - not names out of the phone book, but the real decision-makers who can make your next licensing deal a success.
  • The only widely accepted retail sales data about the licensing business - including the details behind the numbers often quoted by The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Business Week, USA Today and other publications;
  • Exclusive industry surveys such as the annual TLL Licensing Business Survey, salary survey, and royalty rate survey.

But don't just take our word for it. Here's what your colleagues are saying about The Licensing Letter:
