The Politics of Binge Drinking

Business Legal Security: 50 Point Check-list


This is a non-exhaustive 50 point checklist designed to help you avoid some very common legal pitfalls and maximise the legal security of your business.

  1. Make sure that legal ownership assets used in the business are actually owned by the business.
  2. Get written copyright assignments from designers, authors, software and web developers and appropriate warranties of originality.
  3. Check the terms and conditions of third party suppliers of services to ensure you legally own any deliverables they create.
  4. Do not rely on a terminable licence for key business assets; take an assignment or a perpetual royalty-free licence.
