Hi Everyone,

is it legal under UK/EU legislation to enter into an agreement (me, as a Licensee) with a Licensor as of a certain date (say, 05-Dec-07), but have the rights to a movie being transferred to me as of two weeks ago (20-Nov-07) or can the license period only start on or after the date of the agreement? And vice versa: me, as a Licensor, transferring the rights with a back date to a Licensee?
