A family of Website contributor agreementsdocumentsWebsite contributor agreements

These contributor contracts share the same core provisions. The contributor has an obligation to deliver the agreed contributions to the website operator, and to license or assign the intellectual property rights in those contributions to the operator. The contributor also warrants that the contributions will not create legal difficulties for the operator. The contracts take account of the possibility that the contributor may be using source material provided by the operator, and in these cases the operator will be responsible for such source material. Confidentiality obligations protecting the operator are also included in all the contracts.
