re: Copyright clauses

Hello everyone, I've been asked to put in a learning academy for a client here in Singapore and it will mean me designing courses that they will then run themselves. Does anyone have anything on copyright clauses. I understand I'm giving it to them but then I don't want them to potentially set up their own training arm and duplicate my work (or do I have no rights). Any help much appreciated.

Thank you so much.
Hi Andrea, Because intellectual property is such a nightmare (lots of my clients think that if you deliver a course for them, they own the right to the material and exercises - I don't think so!) so I have a clause in my T&Cs that says that we grant our clients ?a non-transferable, royalty-free, irrevocable licence to use our course material in perpetuity (or for however long you want to specify) for the purposes of staff development only.? I hope that helps. Tim
Andrea, Hi. I would suggest that if you are setting up courses for this client, you must set up an agreement on the usage of your materials so that you protect your copyright and their future usage. Think about selling the courses outright to this client for their future use, this is the safest way as then you don't need to worry about copyright issues in the future or duplication of your materials that if you don't have an agreement, you will not have any control over. An SLA is the way to go I reckon.
