The cute charm necklace (above right) is from the Une Journée à Paris, or “Day in Paris” line.
Now on to the fashion law portion of the post…
What to consider if you want to own the right to a creative work:
- The Employee acknowledges that, by reason of being employed by the Employer, to the extent permitted by law, all of the Work Product consisting of copyrightable subject matter is “work made for hire” as defined in the Copyright Act of 1976 (17 U.S.C. § 101). The Employer hereby owns such copyrights. To the extent that the foregoing does not apply, the Employee hereby irrevocably assigns to the Employer, for no additional consideration, the Employee’s entire right, title and interest in and to all Work Product and Intellectual Property Rights therein, including the right to sue, counterclaim and recover for all past, present and future infringement, misappropriation or dilution thereof, and all rights corresponding thereto throughout the world.
While you are at it, you can throw in a moral rights clause. I have worked within a place that before me lacked moral rights clauses in work made for hire agreements and found themselves with hefty upkeep fees at the discretion of the artist who could also prevent movement of their work if such movement did not represent how the artist expected his work to be viewed:
- To the extent any copyrights are assigned under this Agreement, the Employee hereby irrevocably waives, to the extent permitted by applicable law, any and all claims the Employee may now or hereafter have in any jurisdiction to all rights of paternity, integrity, disclosure and withdrawal and any other rights that may be known as “moral rights” with respect to all Work Product and all Intellectual Property Rights therein.
