I have a client for whom I am producing a Yoga training video series. My client would like me to help him find a contract template. My client wishes to create an arrangement whereby he will provide funds to produce the video training series, but the Yoga instructor will own the final product and pay my client royalties.
I have been to Mark Litwick's website. I have perused the titles of the contracts offered in his books, but I have not come across any titles that seem like they are appropriate to my client's needs.
Have any of you come across such a contract template?
Do any of you have any suggestions as to a different type of contract or business arrangement that may work for my client?
When real money is involved a real contract from a real lawyer is much cheaper in the long run than any problems not covered by a template. (But what do I know? I'm not a lawyer -- just someone repeatedly not playing one here on the COW.)
I agree with Nick. This is too serious of an undertaking NOT to involve a lawyer. Running a successful business costs money. Attorney fees are a line item in the overall budget and business plan. Annie up.
