What is a Writer-Work-For-Hire Agreement?

A work-for-hire agreement is a legal contract that you sign along with a screenwriter. The purpose of this document is to state that you are solely hiring the writer to write the script, and to assure that you will be the owner of the writes once it is completed. Terms such as payment, length, revisions and deadlines vary and are always negotiated between the writer and the producer. To attain a proper work-for-hire document, contact a local entertainment lawyer to draft one up for you.
