Yes, you read that correctly – the entire document, including the party details and execution block, fits into just one page. It’s a miraculous achievement of brevity and an extremely useful document. This creates a one-way confidentiality agreement between a single disclosing party and a single recipient.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property – such as copyright, trademarks, patentable inventions, etc – may be some of your most valuable business assets. It is crucially important to ensure that the intellectual property rights of your business are protected to the extent possible. Disputes in relation to intellectual property rights could be extremely disruptive and damaging to your business, so creating a proper “paper trail” to avoid potential IP-related disputes should be a top priority.

Testimonial Release & Consent

If you’re doing things right, then your satisfied customers/clients and enthusiastic staff will want to rave about your business. That’s great – but publishing quotes, photographs and audio/video recordings without proper authorisation can lead to legal problems. Before publishing any testimonial, even from a happy customer/client or staff member, you should obtain a proper written consent and release. The same applies to photographs and audio/video recordings taken for promotional purposes or at business or industry events.

A properly drafted consent and release will help to protect you from potential legal claims whilst giving you the freedom that you need to publish the material across a broad range of media.

Employment Contract with Intellectual Property Provisions

A lot of the valuable IP of your business may in fact be created for you by your employees. In the absence of a properly drafted employment contract, your employees may have a right to claim ownership of valuable intellectual property rights created by them while working for you in your business, even if created during the ordinary course of their work. IP-related disputes between businesses and their employees are all too common, so make sure that you are thoroughly protected with an employment contract that contains properly drafted intellectual property provisions.

The FluentDocs automated employment contract allows you to easily include fulsome IP-related provisions that will help to vest in your business ownership of intellectual property rights that your employees create while working for your business.

Curious? Give it a try.
