Queen's licensees must pay the university royalties equal to 7% of net sales of licensed products sold by the licensee. Royalties are waived on a per-order basis by University Relations on products ordered by university units for the purpose of internal use, promotion, uniforms, or gifts.
Quarterly royalty reports must be submitted showing net sales of licensed product and the royalties payable for the three preceding calendar months. The report must document detailed information including product description, to whom the product was sold, Queen’s University trademark used, and quantity of product sold.
