Outsourcing

Ownership of Outsourced Work and Why You Should Have a Work For Hire Agreement

In today's world, outsourcing is a common practice many entrepreneurs and businesses are doing. However, when a person or company outsources, many legal issues are involved. Specifically, these issues arise from the ownership of outsourced work and the intellectual property that is created in outsourcing the work.
