What are Distribution Rights?

A wholesaler with distribution rights is a wholesaler who has been authorized to sell the manufacturer's product. Market distribution is often tightly controlled for brand-name products, as the owners need to ensure supply remains limited so that their products can continue to sell for a premium.

A retailer buying brand name products from a supplier without distribution rights could potentially have their online listings removed for trademark infringement.
