If I'm hiring a freelancer to be my content creator and blogger for my company, how do I make sure that Copyrights for content created for our company, including all of the associated intellectual property rights with the content will be owned by our company.

Hi Migdeliz,


In general, Optional Service Contract Terms are used unless the client and freelancer agree on different terms, and they contain sections 6.4 ''OWNERSHIP OF WORK PRODUCT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY''.

It depends what the "associated" rights are. If your writer specializes say, in baby clothes and  writes for hire for your site. What he or she writes for your site is your property. But what the writer then writes for other baby clothes sites is (should be) beyond your jurisdiction..

That isn't what associated rights are.  It means things like translation.
