Standard Service Terms of Business with IP Clause (B2B)

Standard Service Terms and Conditions with IP Provisions (B2B)

BS.SERV.TC.04

These Standard Service Terms and Conditions with IP Provisions are designed for use by service providers offering their services to business clients (a “business-to-business” document). An alternative version is available for use with consumer clients. This document is suitable for use in situations where the provision of the services will entail the creation and exploitation of some form of intellectual property rights. The terms of this document are sufficiently broad to cover all kinds of intellectual property rights including copyright, patents and trademarks.

Detailed provisions in these terms and conditions set out the parameters within which the services are to be provided, the obligations of both the service provider and the client, and how and when payment is to be made. Further key terms cover aspects such as insurance, liability and guarantees.

The intellectual property provisions in this document address either the licensing of the relevant rights from the service provider to the client or the assignment of those rights.

Over and above the business-to-consumer version, this template also contains provisions for financial record keeping, confidentiality, non-solicitation, and a more onerous liability and indemnity clause.

These terms and conditions mirror exactly the provisions of the Standard Service Agreement, also available from Simply-Docs. These terms have been written with reference to the agreement, promoting further clarity as to which document is legally binding.

Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused options should be removed from the document.
