16. ASSIGNABILITY This agreement and the rights and obligations arising from the artists are for Artists and cannot be transferred by artistic deed or by law without the prior written consent of Company (Work-for-hire Co.). The company (Work-for-hire Co.) has the full right to transfer this agreement to a successor of the company (Work-for-hire Co.) or to the purchaser of one of the company`s assets (Work-for-hire Co.). one. The artist undertakes to keep this confidential information confidential, unless: 1) it has been made public by an act or omission of another party than himself; 2. The artist receives this confidential information from an independent third party on a non-confidential basis; or (3) the adoption of [number] of years from the date of disclosure of this confidential information to the artist, depending on what will happen first. B. The artist also undertakes to take all reasonable steps to ensure that all this confidential information is properly protected and protected from unauthorized persons or disclosures. c.
At company`s request (Work-for-hire Co.), Artist undertakes to immediately return to the company (Work-for-hire Co.) all materials, fonts, equipment, models, mechanisms and other products purchased by or through the company (Work-for-hire Co.), including, but not limited to all confidential information that the Artistic Council recognizes as exclusive and exclusive ownership of the company (Work-for-hire Co.). d. Artist agrees that he will not use this confidential information directly or indirectly in his own business without prior written permission from Company (Work-for-hire Co.); (2) the production and/or sale of products based, in whole or in part, on such confidential information; or (3) pass this confidential information on to third parties. What is the difference between “Work for hire” and other professional arrangements where the artist retains the rights to his work? Here is an old contribution from me that explains things: Here is the real quiver… All the work of the MAD is WFH. Take it or let it stay. It`s been like this since the beginning of Bill Gaines. In this case, I have no problem with that.
MAD has never had a problem with using the images I make for self-extraction, or putting them on my website (as soon as it was published), and unlike most WFH agreements, I get my originals to keep them and sell them if I want to. Technically, they have everything it takes to make a WFH deal. Yes, they can reprint anything they want without more payment, but that`s really the only bad thing.
