Željko Wiliam Krnjak show and conference Director

as the show and conference Director, i am delighted to welcome you. a four-day educational conference, held concurrently with the trade show, is dedicated to licensing and merchandising and to the vast range of opportunities that are resulting from this business. What is licensing? so, for many years, licensing had been a very difficult business to explain simply because so few had ever heard of it. the father to the modern licensing movement, entertainment licensing has been the catalyst propelling most forms of product-based licensing to prominence in the retail economy./Merchandising started for the Disney brothers with the tremendous success of Mickey Mouse’s steamboat Willie (1928)/ the business has grown fast over the past 25 years. it is a business where one single property can generate so much volume that the overall business can be dramatically impacted in just a single year. those who are succeeding are managing their business better now than their predecessors ever dreamed of. While most of us would argue that product is still a king, licensing has become as much about the marketing and management of the property as the product and properties themselves. When done well, licensing will dimensionalize your brand, deepen relationships with key consumers, increase your value to retailers and enable your organization to create more powerful statements in the marketplace. a licensing program that considers the perspectives of all who connect with your brand will help you build 360° of support. consider, for the purposes of example, four broad groups : (1) customers, (2) partners, (3) retailers, and (4) investors. the world of licensing is growing and developing. gone are the days where everything revolved around one or two territories. there was a time when hit properties almost always came from the Us and, subsequently, from the UK. the world is changing and tomorrow’s hit could come from quite literally anywhere. the first of its kind, project of international Licensing and Merchandising show and conference of new europe aims to rejuvenate and regenerate the power of licensing and merchandising business in this part of the world – market of 400 million people.

although the 35 states of new europe are at different stages of development in terms of their respective offer and support structures one thing they all have in common is they all face increasingly need for support and development of different kind of licensing programmes. (assess the degree of cultural diversity and language differences – take into consideration that local attitudes and behaviors differ by country. in particular dealing with different languages and linguistic environments can be challenging for example in switzerland where people speak french in geneva and Lausanne; german in Zurich, Basel and Bern; and italian in Lugano) for the first time, licensing and merchandising industry gathers all kind of professionals from central and eastern europe, south-east europe and cis region. Participants will have an excellent opportunity to talk together and go through all critical issues and questions. the “What works in Developed licensing world should work in new europe too” premise will be looked at closely. Unified business model often pushed by larger licensing and merchandising industry players is not always the best strategy to choose. regional and cultural differences along with non-uniform legal conditions of cee, see and cis region may create a need for specific market approach. Licensing may not be for everyone, and not every licensed property is right for every manufacturer’s product line or every market, and vice versa. But the fact is, it is difficult to disregard or underestimate the powerful marketing and sales tool that licensing has become. if you want to learn more about the power of licensing and how you can put licensing to work for you, Licensing factory new europe is just right place to be. Welcome.

about licensing and merchandising for the beginners

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND AND DEFINITIONS
Walt Disney pioneered symbiosis marketing techniques in the 1930s by granting dozens of firms the right to use his Mickey Mouse character in products and ads, and continued to market Disney media through licensing arrangements. (these products can help advertise the film itself and thus help to increase the film’s sales) symbiosis is the linking up of various companies to make profits from one product. Walt Disney – first steps the first Disney cartoons featuring the character Mickey Mouse appeared in 1928, and the character quickly took the country by storm. Disney began licensing the use of Mickey’s image fairly early; the first appearance may have been on a writing tablet in 1929 the company was offered $300 to put Mickey Mouse on writing tablets. other merchandise was authorized beginning in 1930, however, as the mouse’s popularity grew around the world so did unauthorized products bearing its image. Disney was said to be disgusted by poor-quality products depicting inaccurate versions of his character. in 1932 he hired a Kansas city advertising man, herman “Kay” Kamen, to oversee all licensing aspects for the Disney company, and the number of products with Mickey’s likeness exploded. everything from ice cream cones to doorstops bore the image of Mickey Mouse. the extra income helped to finance expensive production at the Disney studio. as the cartoon character’s popularity soared during the early 1930s, so did the number of products emblazoned with its image. the cleveland Plain Dealer described a imaginary child lavished with Mickey Mouse merchandise in 1935:

“in his room, bordered with M.M. wall paper and lighted with M.M. lamps, his M.M. alarm clock awakens him, providing his mother forgets! Jumping from his bed where his pajamas and the bedding are the M.M. brand, to a floor the rugs and linoleum upon which are M.M. sponsored, he puts on his M.M. moccasins and rushes to the bathroom to have the first chance at . . . no, you’re wrong . . . at the soap made in the Disney manner, as are also his toothbrush, hair-brush and towels.” the Mickey Mouse Undies featured here are an early example of Disney merchandising. they date from the early 1930s, when Kamen had just taken over product licensing. Disney contracted with the norwich Knitting company of new york to produce children’s clothing, including the one-piece garment pictured here. Made for a toddler, it is cotton with drop-seat drawers, and plain except for a printed image of Mickey on the right breast. a cloth label inside the neckline displays another view of the character. “Manufactured under exclusive license from Walt Disney“, Mickey Mouse Undies are just one product of the merchandising marvel known today as the Walt Disney company. (the Walt Disney company had its roots in Kansas City. Walt Disney spent much of his youth in northcentral Missouri and later Kansas city where, among

other jobs, he made animated commercials for a local ad company. Disney taught himself animation techniques and produced cartoons for a local theater in his spare time, but was forced out of business when the theater went bankrupt. Walt then scraped together enough money to buy a train ticket to california, where he continued working on a series of cartoons conceived in Kansas city. in 1923 Walt and his brother roy opened the Disney Brothers Studio in the back of a Los angeles real-estate office, and the rest, as they say, is history.) source: Kansas historical society Leading idea: increasing revenue stream through the sale of character merchandise there are many references to Kay Kamen in all of the major Walter elias Disney biographies (about Kay Kamen and the impact he had on Disney merchandise in the 1930s and 1940s). he is, understandably, a very important person in the history of the Disney studio. his business acumen and marketing genius generated tens of millions of dollars in merchandise revenue, which was in turn used to fund the many projects Walt Disney envisioned. in early 1932, herman “Kay” Kamen left his home in Kansas city for a business meeting in hollywood, california. the man he was going to meet had made a similar journey west almost a decade earlier. the purpose of Kamen’s trip west was to discuss merchandising ideas with Walt and roy Disney. at their first meeting, Kamen presented his ideas for increasing the studio’s revenue stream through the sale of character merchandise. the brothers were suitably impressed and on July 1, 1932, they awarded Kamen his first contract. after the agreements with the george Borgfeldt and William Levy B. Levy com10

panies expired, Kamen assumed control of all Disney merchandise licensing agreements. through a well thought out and brilliantly executed marketing plan, Kamen quickly established Disney characters as the dominant product on the shelves of toy departments across america. at the height of the great Depression, Kamen negotiated deals with some of america’s largest manufacturers including ingersoll and Lionel. in 1934 Kamen inked an unheard of 1.5 million dollar deal with general foods. the agreement gave the cereal producer the right to reproduce Disney characters on boxes of Post toasties. adjusted for inflation, that contract would be worth almost $24 million dollars in 2008. the so-called cereal “cut-outs” were huge hits. after children finished their box of cereal, the images printed on the box were cut-out and became instant playthings. at a time when thousands of americans found themselves out of work and with no disposable income, these cut-outs were undoubtedly the only toys some children had. general foods association with Disney lasted until 1941. over the course of their partnership, hundreds of thousands if not millions of boxes of cereal imprinted with Disney character images were sold. source: David „Dave“ Lesjak, Vintage Disney collectibles Business acumen and marketing genius: powerfull impact a wide range of Disney products appeared in markets around the world, everything from soap to ice cream to cartier diamond bracelets. Mickey Mouse is often claimed to be the most popular licensed character in the world and still appears on thousands of merchandise items and publications. Until the 1960s and 1970s, relatively little merchandising activity took place in hollywood, except by the Walt Disney company. Disney continued to develop merchandise connected

with its films and film characters over the years. But the Disney company was the exception, rather than the rule. though the motion picture industry may have been relatively slow to pick up on merchandising, this type of activity accelerated dramatically during the 1990s and early twenty-first century. the current phase of film-based licensing can be traced back specifically to the merchandising successes of star Wars (1977) and e.t. the extra-terrestrial (1982), but has continued with the blockbuster, action-figure based films of the 1990s (for instance, Batman [1989] and spider-Man [2002]), as well as the successful franchise films in the early twenty-first century (such as the Lord of the rings [2001–2003] and harry Potter [beginning in 2001]). further merchandising opportunities and close relationships between products and films are presented in films such as a Bug’s Life (1998) and toy story (1995), where the film is about toys or characters particularly suitable for toys. the distinction between tie-ins and merchandise is often blurred, as some merchandise is produced for tie-ins. Merchandise can be defined as commodities based on movie themes, characters or images that are designed, produced, and marketed for direct sale, and not connected to established products or services, as is the case with tie-ins. an example of a tie-in is represented by the promotion of Disney films at McDonald’s restaurants, even though there may be some merchandise items involved in such activities. Licensing is the legal act or process of selling or buying rights to produce commodities using specific copyrighted properties. Merchandising can be thought of as the mechanical act of making or selling a product based on a copyrighted property. there is an extremely wide variety of movie-based merchandise, including items based on a specific movie, character, or theme, or ongoing movie characters and themes. While there has been a strong emphasis on children’s toys, games and other items (lunch boxes, school supplies, and so forth), and on video games, other movie-based merchandise includes home furnishings (clocks, towels, bedding, mugs, telephones), clothing, jewelry, stationery items, print material (novelizations and posters, for example), food (especially cereals and candy), and decorations (such as christmas ornaments). there are also other, more unusual, less mass-produced items that sometimes accompany (or follow) movie releases, including “art objects” such as prints, sculptures, ceramic figures, and animation sets. for instance, in 2005 one could purchase sculptures of most of the characters from Lord of the rings, including a bronze statue of gandalf for around $6,500. other merchandise is based on the celebrity status of hollywood stars (for instance, products with images with Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are plentiful), or generic movie or studio themes. indeed, many of the majors feature studio tours, complete with well-stocked gift shops offering a wide range of merchandise featuring their familiar corporate logos. Movie-based merchandising can be viewed as part of the proliferation of commercialization in hollywood, the increase in animated features, and the rerelease and remaking of films with readily identifiable, ongoing characters and themes (or franchises). however, this type of activity also is part of a larger, more general merchandising and licensing trend. for instance, entire tV programs and characters -especially those aimed at children-are an obvious and prevalent form of merchandising, while sports teams and players, rock stars, and musical groups have long histories of licensing and merchandising activities. although entertainment licensing in the merchandising industry has been influenced by the emergence of merchandise based on other types of properties, there is little question, according to many experts, that film licensing continues to dominate the licensing market. entertainment licensing is also the most concentrated type of merchandise business.

Rovinj “if a beauty contest were held among croatia’s coastal resorts, then rovinj would win every time.” aBta magazine, July 2008 rovinj, the “Blue Pearl of the adriatic”, is one of the most picturesque towns in the Mediterranean. Part of the Venetian empire for over 500 years, the old town is perched on a pear-shaped peninsula high up on a hill, crowded with Venetian terracottaroofed houses and crowned by the 18th century church of st euphemia, whose bell tower dominates rovinj’s skyline. atmospheric cobbled alleys in the old town invite visitors to wander around and explore colourful galleries and shops, filled with local arts and crafts. in the openair market visitors will find stalls with fresh produce, such as asparagus, olives, tomatoes, herbs, figs and cheese. the italian influence is much stronger here than anywhere else in croatia, and the central square is edged with lively cafes and restaurants spreading out on to a charming harbour crammed with sailing and fishing boats – perfect to watch the world go by. rovinj is in the heart of gastronomic croatia, with heady white truffles, freshly caught seafood and fish and

Our new crane model “Sniper” has modular length from 3 to 12 meters and has the ability to memorize the path of the head which includes memory and command-wide zoom, iris and focus. Crane has 10 targeting memory. The most important feature of the crane (which is our invention and patent) is the target object record (leaders, singers, or for something/someone else). This means that you can rotate crane in all directions, and the head itself rotates obstacle to the house and keeps him constantly in the middle of the monitor. This option allows that anyone can work with the Sniper, not just rare experts. 2. “One Dolly” is the first electronic dolly made in this part of Europe controlled via joystick that allows the movement of the camera in all directions and control of zoom and focus for all objectives. Dolly moving rails at length, has a perfectly easy movement, and high speed. 3. “Robocam“ system is a robotized system of three or more tripods that are designed so that one man controls everything from directing to camera in studio.

Definitions & GLOSSARY OF TERMINOLOGY

in a nutshell, licensing is a different way of thinking about the use of „intellectual property“ – which is the legal term of someones idea. Whether it’s a patent, trademark or original work like a film, book, cartoon, or video game – licensing provides a framework to unite the owners of these ideas with the people who know how to sell them. Licensing can be lucrative for: creative people who provide the ideas, business people to promote the ideas and bring products to market, and agents to spot new opportunities and act on them! Licensing is a contractual method of developing and exploiting intellectual property by transferring rights of use to third parties without the transfer of ownership. from a legal perspective, licensing involves complex issues of contract, tax, antitrust, international, tort, and intellectual property law. from a business perspective, licensing involves a weighing of the advantages of licensing against the disadvantages in comparision to alternative types of vertical distribution systems. Licensing is the business of leasing the right to use a legally protected name, graphic, logo, saying or likeness in conjunction with a product, promotion, or service. it is usually accomplished by a formal agreement between the owner or agent of the mark (the Licensor) and the prospective Licensee who is either a manufacturer, supplier of services or an agent on behalf of them.
