Agreement Review Services – IP in contracts and terms and conditions
Contracts, agreements and T&Cs covering intellectual property are useful supports to stronger IP protection.
It is always worthwhile making sure that IP is reflected in agreements for example ensuring your logo designer passes the rights of the design over to you after you have paid them.
As previously stated, IP in collaborations often falls over on ownership and definitions of background, foreground and sideground IP, and it is far preferable to have this established in advance.
Many NDAs ignore the fact that trade secrets can last forever! Non-compete, non-copy and non-reverse engineer clauses can be very helpful.
