4. Rights and data. The consulting agreement should cover the use of the consultant`s work. Some agreements allow the client to make full use of the physical product provided by the consultant and may not be subject to a copyright assignment assuming that the advisor wishes to retain the copyright. Clauses such as those contained in the C5-84 information file, Sample Consulting Agreement, contain a transfer of copyright. The best position for the client is to get complete ownership not only on the material documents that the advisor prepares, but also the copyright on those documents. However, the advisor may ask for much more compensation to award this right, which makes it impractical. However, it is very important that the parties clearly understand their respective rights, not only on physical documents, but also on copyright. Keep in mind that it is better to include too much in the agreement than not to do enough. Never expect certain conditions or expectations to be agreed, unless they are expressly specified in the Contract. The violation by the advisor subjects the advisor to corrective measures available to the client. These remedial measures include fair relief and financial damages. An action against the offending counselor helps to prevent a further breach of contract.
