Standard Agreement Templates - Content Creation and Copyright Assignment
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

Often, I get requests to draft a simple agreement whereby the business owner who paid or is about to pay for some content created specifically for that business would own copyright in what they pay for.

Just today, I got a call from an existing client. They hired a videographer to create videos for their business. Now the videographer is claiming that my client does not own copyright in the videos. However surprising this may be to most people, the videographer is correct, at least from the legal standpoint.

Unless there is an assignment of copyright in writing, the copyright remains with the person who created the work, in this case, the videos.

Often, the client’s situation does not justify hiring a lawyer to create a completely customized agreement.

So I decided to share the template that I developed as a result of many years of writing these agreements in different jurisdictions.

If you hired someone to create content for you or you are about to hire someone to create content for you and you don’t have a budget to document the transfer of intellectual property from your contractor to you, you should definitely check out these templates. They may not ideally fit your situation and are not offered as legal advice, but in my experience, they should take care of 90% of the situations that usually arise around such facts.

This is where you can download standard Content Creation and Copyright Assignment templates at a fraction of what it would cost you to have a lawyer draft a customized contract. Check out the previews and see for yourself that the level of details covered in these templates greatly exceeds anything that you can download for free on the Internet.

Hoping that this will be of value to you.

Educational Videos on Trademarks
Facebook Twitter LinkedIn GooglePlus Email Share It

It is my pleasure to share with you a series of educational videos on trademarks that I have just created.

The total running time is under an hour, and if you are a small business owner I guarantee that watching these videos will be well worth your time.

No need to register, sign up or anything. Just watch the videos and learn.

P.S. For those interested, I wrote the music you hear in the intro and the outro when I was 13. This is the song that got me to travel to the U.S. in 1988 as part of the Soviet-American mission to promote peace. I was practicing on my drums and for some reason it appeared to me that this song would make a perfect corporate anthem for Mincov Law Corporation. So there you go!
