    Hi to all, someone has experience with contracts for a Job? I mean that, when I'm outsourcing works, I want to sign with the one who performs the work a contract where is explained that all the rights/copyights/attbutions becomes 100% mine.

    With this contract I want to be able to use, resell and do what I want after signing the contract. One who makes the job can not use it without my permission because from the moment of signing the material is mine.
    This contract is aimed at American people and even foreign.

    Some advices about the legal/copyright laws and type of contracts to use?

    Thanks

    Yes, I know this kind of contract but I want to be able to resell for example logos and he, seeing that I'm blatantly reselling the logo, can't say anything about becase the logo has become mine after signing the contract.

    As long as the Contract/NDA/Legal Document the contractor signs clearly states that you or your business are the sole owner of the rights to any and all IP the contractor creates, you are covered.

    As far as how you word that, it would be wise to consult a lawyer as every circumstance is different.

    You can find template documents online, but if you use one you should get it tailored to suit your specific needs.

    My advice would be to get one drafted by a lawyer though

    The most important thing in my opinion is finding a contractor with a solid reputation.

    I think you are looking for a contract for hire agreement. Good examples if you google "Contract for hire" and look for a provision similar to that they acknowledge and agree that the "Work is a work-for-hire as defined by the Copyright Act, Section 101 of Title 17 of the United States Code. You acknowledge that the Company directs Your efforts in creating the Work and that the Company has sole control over creative decisions
    and approvals relating to the Work. The Company is entitled to the sole and exclusive benefit of
    the Work including copyright and any extensions or renewals thereof. You agree not to use,
    make derivative works, copy, distribute, broadcast, display, or perform the Work, or any part of
    the Work without express permission of the Company or once it is completed, except as
    necessary to fulfill the terms of this Agreement."

    But trepanated is right...consult with an attorney....
