The A-Z of Contract Clauses

Sixth Edition

By Deborah Fosbrook, Adrian C Laing

In this high speed world, the ability to turn an agreement around quickly is a necessity for most busy lawyers. The A-Z of Contract Clauses is a master toolkit of UK contract clauses drafted by experts in UK copyright and contract law. Thousands of clauses are ready to use and adapt, saving time and effort when creating a new license, option, assignment, or agreement for services. Organized clearly by subject area, each main clause heading is further broken down across types of use, such as film and television, general business and commercial, internet/websites, merchandising, publishing, services, and education. Clauses are drafted from different angles, with some being especially innovative. The book also includes a legal, commercial, and business directory, which can be used to develop further knowledge of the subject. This sixth edition has been updated to take account of new technology, UK legislation, and the impact of the internet and social media. New material includes: clauses relating to one off festivals and other events * tender and procurement * clearing of material * pre-contract negotiations * employment * commissioning designs and market surveys * disputes * liability * rights * damages and loss * software development * disclaimers * use of data * buyouts and ownership of material * exploitation and merchandising * option, royalties, and marketing * collaboration projects * costs and budgets * environment and product liability * cancellation * compliance and change of control of company.
