You, savvy business owner, want to protect your intellectual property.
And, you’ve learned along the way that, for the most part, copyright does not transfer from one person to another unless there’s a signed, written document that says so. Even if you paid someone to create something for you. You’ve made the panicky realization that you might not technically own the creative content you thought you owned.
You need an IP rights agreement, and fast. And…preferably something simple (that still gets the job done).
But worry not. This IP Rights Agreement Contract Kit will guide you through the steps and edits you need to make to ensure that you wrap up the rights to that content so that you can register it with the Copyright Office or otherwise sleep easy when it comes to knowing this content is yours and only yours.
Included: A word document (which enables editing), a manual for use in connection with the template, and a numbered .pdf that corresponds with the manual.
This template addresses terms like:
- Brief description of services provided by the contractor;
- Ownership of IP;
- A promise by the contractor that he/she hasn’t infringed in order to create that work; and
- Treatment of confidential information.
This contract is for general use and does not substitute, offer, nor should it be interpreted as offering, specific legal advice. If you wish to book a limited, discounted consultation to go through this contract template with Spear IP following your purchase, the cost is $95 and you may schedule that consultation here.
