Copyright Agreements

Collaboratively create, negotiate, and sign agreements to get everyone on the same page.

Art is collaborative by nature.

Sometimes the best ideas come from working with someone else. Make sure that all of your collaborators are on the same page by establishing ownership and outlining important details so that you can avoid costly misunderstandings in the future.

Why do I need written agreements with my collaborators?

If you plan to sell, license, or otherwise monetize your content, protecting your intellectual property is the most important and critical step that you can take.

Save Big

Establishing and protecting ownership of your content now can save you time, money and the frustration of content-related issues in the future. (e.g. lawsuits, arguments, loss of income, etc.)

Claim Your Slice

Without an agreement in place, each of your collaborators by default will own an equal share of the content you create together, regardless of how minor or major their contribution is.

Authorized to License

When you want to sell or license your content via a third party partner, you will likely need to disclose the owners of the content and their respective shares.

Operate Independently

You may need to obtain permission from your collaborators to enter into an agreement with third parties. This is easier to do when you have agreements that establish ownership beforehand.
