Reseller Agreements and Termination: A Brief Summary and Introduction

Reseller agreements have been shaped in part by new realities that have been introduced by the Internet. In the past, most agreements had a specified geographic area where the reseller was authorized to market the OEM’s products.

This article serves as an introduction to these agreements and summarizes the main points of interest.
