IP Security Agreements

Read what Net Lawman says about these templates:

"These agreements protect intellectual property rights, combining non-disclosure by your employees, or your contractors and their staff with respect to current and future IP in your business, and automatic transfer of ownership to your business of any new IP created by them in the course of working for you."

Template: Intellectual Property Rights security agreement: contractor

What Net Lawman says about this template:

"This agreement protects the intellectual property of your business against theft or misuse by a contractor who works for you or with you in any capacity. Your IP could be anything, from customer data to product designs to a manufacturing process. Use this agreement to help prevent a contractor or his or her staff from stealing your intellectual property. This is not a contract for actual work. Rather it is more in the nature of a high level confidentiality agreement that includes provisions relating to ownership of created work."

Template: Intellectual Property Rights security agreement: employee

What Net Lawman says about this template:

"This agreement supplements an employment contract and gives additional protection to IP. It covers confidentiality, ownership of IP produced, and non-competition. This comprehensive agreement goes further than a standard employment contract in protecting sensitive workplace information and asserting the employer's rights to ownership of intellectual property. It can be used by a business in any industry. It effectively combines three types of document."

Detailed guidance notes are provided with each template. Net Lawman offers a money back guarantee if the document is not what you need, as well as a legal review option if you want some professional assistance when you are drawing up your documents.
