You need a Copywriting Agreement with your clients
As a Copywriter, Content Writer or Freelance Writer, this is the most important document you need. It should detail the writing services you are providing and be signed by them. A well written Copywriting Agreement will provide you with legal protection and show your client you are a professional operator.
The package also includes ‘Proposal and Quote Terms’ that you should copy/paste to your proposal and quote emails. These ensure your proposals and quotes reference your Copywriting Agreement terms.
“Must have” legal notices for your Copywriting website
- Website Disclaimer – To limit your liability from information you publish and to protect your Copyright.
- Terms & Conditions – To state the terms under which you do business and clarify service expectations with potential clients. Australian Consumer Law requires this for all your customers.
Quick and easy online forms
Just input some basic information into each online form and your customised legal agreements and notices are automatically generated.
The Copywriting Agreement comes in PDF, Word and Google Docs formats. The Proposal and Quote Terms are in text format. The Copywriting Website Legals are in text format that you just copy and paste into your website and make any changes to match your business model.
Free updates so you don’t worry about legislation changes
Australian Consumer and Privacy law is constantly changing, particularly with regard to the Internet and online businesses. We’re Australian lawyers and we make it our business to keep on top of these changes. We don’t overwhelm you with emails, but when the law changes and any of the standard online templates are updated we let you know, so you never have to worry.
Online video instructions and telephone support
Online video instructions are included with each form. We step you through filling out each online form and explain important clauses as we go. But the forms are not complicated and the instruction videos are short.
And you can always call us if you have any questions.
Is the copywriting legal package right for me?
The default version of the Copywriting Agreement gives ownership of the written content to your client once payment has been made. However, we have included editable versions of the Copywriting Agreement (in Word and Google Docs formats) so you can change this yourself.
I want to subcontract work to a third party …
The Copywriting Agreement stipulates you will be the sole author of any written work. However, it also adds that you can subcontract work if you have the permission of your client.
If you receive any compensation for your writing, you should have a written agreement with your client. This ensures clarity over ownership of the work and limits any personal liability that may arise.
I want my logo on the agreements …
No problem. The Copywriting Agreement comes in Word and Google Docs formats and is fully editable, so you can attach your logo and personalise your agreements.
