This Content Copyright Assignment/Transfer helps you secure the copyrights for any original material that was created by someone else on your behalf if you didn’t have any kind of writing/contract that talked about copyright ownership.

This contract template is perfect for small companies, brands, and influencers who have gotten creative help from a service provider or freelancer and want to make sure that they USE that content in their business in whatever ways they want.  

Perfect for:

  • Freelance graphic designers

  • Social media consultant

  • Copywriter

  • Virtual assistant

  • Assistant

  • Independent contractor help

  • Photographer

  • OR anyone else who has created something -- ANYTHING that you use in your business. If you did not have something IN WRITING about who owned the rights to it -- then the CREATOR of the work automatically has the rights. Even if you “paid” for it. Even if you used a website, or freelancer service, and even if the creator “thinks” you have the rights. Be sure -- be thorough -- and get this assignment as a fill-in to make sure that you have rights to your logo, website, Instagram template, and all of the other magic that has become a treasured part of your brand!!

Useful for:

  • social media posts

  • Videos

  • Podcasts/audio clips

  • live video or other live or story-format content campaigns

  • Graphics

  • Photography

  • Logos

  • Original Hand-lettered work

  • Illustrations

  • Patterns

  • Website copy

  • Sales copy

  • Blog articles

  • Guest posts

This is NOT the right fit if:

  • You only want part of the copyrights or “ bundle of sticks” transferred from the CREATOR to the COMPANY. If so -- use the Limited Rights Copyright Transfer.

  • You still need to negotiate how much money will be paid for the content. This agreement is a simple release that assumes the Creator is fine with you having the rights. Ideally, you will have an independent contractor agreement or a client service agreement to cover copyright ownership + all the other legal details
