Article 1029. Commercial subconcession.
1. A contract of commercial concession may provide for the right of a user to allow other persons to use the complex of exclusive rights granted to him or part of this complex under the terms of subconcession agreed with the rightholder or specified in the agreement of the commercial concession. The contract may provide for the obligation of the user to provide for a certain period of time a certain number of persons the right to exercise these rights on subconcession terms. A commercial subconcession agreement cannot be concluded for a longer period than the agreement of commercial concession on the basis of which it is concluded. 2. If the agreement of commercial concession is invalid, the agreements of commercial subconcession concluded on the basis of it. 3. Unless otherwise stipulated by the agreement of the commercial concession concluded for a period in case of early termination of the rights and obligations of the secondary rightholder under the agreement of the commercial subconcession (the user under the agreement of the commercial concession) shall be transferred to the rightholder if he does not refuse to assume the rights and obligations of this contract. This rule is accordingly applied at termination of the agreement of the commercial concession concluded without specifying the term. 4. The user shall bear subsidiary liability for the harm caused to the right holder by the actions of secondary users, unless otherwise provided by the agreement of the commercial concession. 5. The rules on the contract of commercial concession provided for in this Chapter shall be applied to the contract of commercial subconcession, unless otherwise following from the features of the subconcession.
