WHY YOU NEED A INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ASSIGNMENT AGREEMENT

Whenever you engage someone to create intellectual property (IP) for you, make sure you put an agreement in black & white. It will help you evidence and protect your right to ownership of the IP.

If you don't have evidence that you own the intellectual property you use in your business (such as website copy, photographs, software, film scripts and customer lists) the original creator may limit how you can use it or, worse still, sue you for using it.

It makes it harder to sell your business if you can't prove you own the intangible items such as IP.

So when you pay creators for their work, make sure you have them sign over the IP to you.


WHEN TO USE THIS INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY ASSIGNMENT AGREEMENT

This Deed of Assignment of IP Template can be used for the transfer of most intellectual property such as written materials (eg, website copy), photographs (eg, images you use in your advertising and promotion) and software (eg, websites, databases and computer programs).

You can use Legal Zebra's downloadable Template to put a basic legally binding Intellectual Property Assignment Agreement in place, instantly.

Here are some examples of when to use our Intellectual Property Assignment Agreement Template...

Example: Hired a developer to build a software application

I got a guy to build me an app. It works well but I’m worried he’s going to try to claim part of my business since he helped me design it.

Example: Graphic designer agrees to transfer copyright to client

My client wants me to sign a document to confirm that they own the copyright in my designs. I want to give the client a simple document to cover this.

Example: Employee assigns intellectual property to employer

Our company wants to make sure that we own the IP that our employees have developed. We don’t have this in our employment agreement.
