The Works for Hire Agreement is used when hiring a contractor to create materials you require complete ownership of. Use this agreement to ensure there is no question of the ownership details of materials created by a contractor. If you do not spell out ownership details in your contractor agreements you might not acquire actual copyright ownership of the materials as you would if an employee had created the works. Used when a more clear definition of the copyright arrangement between two parties engaging in work needs to be made. The agreement favors the company and allows the contractor to quitclaim all rights to any works paid for, or incorporated into the company's projects and materials. Special attention is paid to the definition and exclusion of a contractor's "Moral Rights" to any works and the ability to direct their approval and usage.
