Sales agent terms

    We are considering retaining a sales agent/distributor to place our products in stores and service these accounts.

    If we terminate the agent's services in the future what would be our terms regarding the continued sales of our product by the stores? Do we pay the agent a commission for the rest of eternity even though we would be servicing these accounts?

    Is there a limit to this time as recognized as standard in the "industry" of sales agents?

    Thanks.
