C2M Live! January: Intellectual Property and Other Sticky Issues in Consulting Contracts
View Registrations Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

It used to be easy to negotiate contracts with your clients – you prepared a Statement of Work, agreed on your hourly rate, when payment is due, and (maybe) a milestone schedule, and you were pretty much done. Not anymore. As consulting services become much more digital, intangible and cloud-based, intellectual property issues are becoming more important for your clients, who need absolutely clarity in their agreements as to exactly “who owns what” in the consulting relationship.

It used to be easy to negotiate contracts with your clients – you prepared a Statement of Work, agreed on your hourly rate, when payment is due, and (maybe) a milestone schedule, and you were pretty much done.

Not anymore.

As consulting services become much more digital, intangible and cloud-based, intellectual property issues are becoming more important for your clients, who need absolutely clarity in their agreements as to exactly “who owns what” in the consulting relationship.

In this fast-paced, humorous, and exciting program, Cliff Ennico will teach you how to negotiate “assignment of work”, “copyright” and other IP-oriented provisions in your consulting contracts.  Specific topics will include:

 

  • the difference between copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets;
  • the difference between “assigning” and “licensing” IP rights;
  • your obligation to protect your client’s IP;
  • protecting IP you have generated and plan to use for other clients;
  • when you can – and should – assign IP rights to your work product to a client;
  • your ability to use IP after a consulting relationship ends; and
  • the finer points of confidentiality, non-solicitation and noncompete agreements.
