The New York Department of Law requires that certain provisions be amended in franchise documents in order to comply with New York law, including the General Economic Law, Section 33, Sections 680 to 695 (1989). The trade association is made up of experienced and knowledgeable people, but it is a private company that is commercially operated in order to promote and protect the financial interests of its subscribers. The protection of its investment should be very important for a franchisee. The agreement covers this provision in detail, from franchise renewal rights, from transfer with pre-emptive right to intellectual property that the franchisee could create. These should provide a level playing field that encourages the franchisee and allows them to take advantage of the fact that they have established their franchise without the franchisee renouncing too many rights.
