Licensing.biz's 2016 Power List of the most influential brands in licensing is now available to read online.
Voted for by independent professionals from across the licensing industry – including licensors, licensees, retailers, agents and others – the four categories of the Power List had stand-out winners.
In the Character & Entertainment category, Paw Patrol took the top spot from last year’s number one, Minions.
For the fourth year running, LEGO topped the Brands category, while the V&A retained the top spot in the Art & Design listing.
Meanwhile, Rio 2016 beat off strong competition from Manchester Utd to lead the Sport category.
