The article investigates the correlation between franchise agreement and trademark license under the provisions of lithuanian Civil Code and trademark law. the analysis shows that both contracts are autonomous and trademark license is usually the “core” inside of a franchise agreement. Franchise agreement is qualified mainly on the analysis of rights and obligations of the parties, the most important of which is quality control provision. Despite the fact that franchise agreement regulations provide with a number of detailed provisions of various aspects of a contract, such provisions cannot be applied unconsciously to a trademark license. However, even in such situation, certain legal questions of a trademark license are interpreted in the same way as in franchise agreement.
