The most significant and essential document a mobile application designer should have is a periphrastic and credible contract. The worst thing is though, mobile application designers or mobile application developer, especially when they are just starting out, can ill afford the expense of paying a lawyer to draw up a decent contract.
As a possible cost effective solution for you, in hellobonsai, we have decorated some freely available mobile application designing contract sample templates you could use. You are allowed to use the sample in their entirety, by simply filling in the relevant personal, client and project details, and use it as your own. Or, you could use them as a reference when writing your own. Whichever way you choose to use these sample contracts, it is recommended that you still have your contract draft checked by a lawyer. Protect yourselves.
According to Copyright Law, the mobile application developer owns the code in the very moment it is �fixed in tangible form.� In other words, you own the copyright as soon as you press �Save,� even if you haven�t released anything yet. This is also counts, of course, for the design and creative content that goes on the app. In the vast majority of cases, you will also use the work of others to build your app. You had better make sure you own it, or you might be exposed to third parties� claims to revenues. This is what the Technology Assignment Agreement is for. It�s a simple contract where someone will assign to you (or to your company, if you are incorporated) the intellectual property of the work.
