Sample Content Provider Contract or Agreement


Privacy Policy

Content Provider Agreement Do you want to save money in legal fees?

If you are publishing or distributing third party articles, stories, essays, reports, images, or other multimedia content, you need a good contract in place to protect your interests. A simple verbal agreement or casual exchange of email messages is just not good enough.

There are many ways you can get in trouble when publishing material created by other parties. Whether your third party content is meant for a web site, Internet portal, email newsletter, CD ROM or other medium, an investment in legal advice in the beginning is likely to save you many dollars later.

But as you know, contract language is confusing and lawyers bill by the hour.

First, just to be sure we are talking the same language, a Content Provider Agreement is an arrangement in which an individual, business, or organization contracts with another person or company to provide content for publication.

First, let me say up front that there is no substitute for a good attorney if you're entering into anything but the simplest of agreements.

However, you can save money by minimizing the billable hours that your lawyer will spend on your agreement if you do the preliminary work yourself. It's not as difficult as you think, especially if you use this Content Provider document as your guide.

This sample contract or agreement has been approved by a contract lawyer, so you can be assured that it is based on solid principles of contract law. However, it is not meant to be a substitute for legal advice. After completing the document to your satisfaction, be sure to take it to your own attorney for review before using.

  • When you download this document, you will receive three legal-size pages of contract material -- covering the general categories and terms that should appear in most legal agreements with content providers.
  • Using the contract as a guide, you add your own information, being sure to customize it by editing, deleting or adding terms to suit your unique requirements. It is not possible that any "off the shelf" contract could fit every need, after all!
  • There is a good chance that you will find items in the contract that you hadn't thought about yourself. Perhaps some of the items will spark your imagination and cause you to think of new aspects that you want to add.
  • Then, when it is completed, decide for yourself which of the terms you have included are negotiable and which are non-negotiable. Jot this down on a separate paper and take it along when you visit your attorney. You will be prepared to discuss the Content Provider Agreement from start to finish and you will be prepared to discuss negotiation strategies.

This document will be helpful to anyone entering into a contractual arrangement with a content provider. At three legal pages, it is a well developed document.
