Please read the disclaimer under www.ipag.at/projekt/download before using IPAG model contracts. Where the term “copyright” is used in this Agreement, it is appropriate to understand the bundle of rights that protect original works from authorship defined in a medium of tangible expression, now known or later developed, from which they can be perceived, reproduced or communicated directly or using a machine or apparatus. “works of authorship” (including computer programs), but are not limited to literary works; musical works, including any accompanying words; dramatic works, including all accompanying music; mimes and choreographic works; visual, graphic and sculptural work (photographs, prints, diagrams, models and technical drawings); films and other audiovisual works; sound recordings; and architectural works. IPAG is a project of the “Universities of Austria”, funded by the National Contact Point for Intellectual Property (ncp.ip) at the Federal Ministry of Science and Research (BMWF), the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs, Family and Youth (BMWFJ), the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology. Austrian universities and companies have jointly designed these framework agreements to enable an effective transfer of knowledge and technology. If you assign the intellectual property, this must always be done in writing by a formal agreement. Many IP rights cannot be assigned correctly without a written document. For example, section 90(3) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 states that “the transfer of copyright is not effective unless it is signed in writing by or on behalf of the copyright holder”. .
