Why Contracts are Important to Protect Your Intellectual Property
It is unfortunate that artists and creators have their work taken without their consent or due compensation. Thankfully, Flo Rida was able to have his day in court, allowing the artist to stand up for their rights and get the recognition he deserved. This demonstrates the importance of protecting your brand and highlights that creativity should always be acknowledged as work that matters – and unauthorized use is never okay. As a fellow creator myself, I’m glad that he was able to have justice served and receive due credit for their creation.
Creators, artists, and musicians all have one thing in common – their hard work is the basis of their intellectual property. The importance of protecting that property cannot be overstated, and contracts are the most effective way to ensure they aren’t taken advantage of or short-changed. A contract sets out legal boundaries that dictate how the artist’s copyrights are used, where their work can appear, who owns what rights, and more. Even if an artist has been promised a certain amount for their work without a contract to back it up, there’s little protection if the paying party fails to meet those expectations. A legally binding agreement is a contract that says when things need to be done and what will happen if something goes wrong. Creators should ask for help from a lawyer to make sure the contract meets their needs. This will help protect their hard work, ideas, and brand.
Flo Rida’s victory proves the importance of understanding what you are signing, protecting your hard work, and understanding your rights. It’s a reminder that trying to do it yourself or not seeking help from an experienced attorney puts you at risk of not being able to exercise your legal rights. Additionally, contracts are critical for many reasons, perhaps most importantly – so that you’re protected when disputes arise and can take action if they do. Whether you’re a photographer, an artist, a musician, or any other creator, understanding your intellectual property and having proper contracts is critical.
