IP development contracts

These contracts are comprehensive agreements to create, develop or modify intellectual property, including product designs and software. They ensure that the rights to the IP transfer to the client on completion of the work and that confidentiality is maintained during and after the project.

    Easy To Format
    The process of purchasing the required template was simple, and I was easily able to format it to ensure consistency with other company documents, and then amend the detail to meet our needs.

    The document I downloaded was a product development copyright document. It was the closest fit I could find to what I needed. However it covered the subject from a to z when what I needed was A to C. It was useful as a base and I have removed probably 60% of the original template to produce what I needed.
