Writing a Contributor Agreement


Are there any good examples of contributor agreements for games available? I’d like to draw one together for non-paid and paid contributions to a UE4 game.

I’m talking about the type of agreement that designates ownership of contributed IP to the entity that owns the game.

Is this something that a lawyer needs to draw up, or can it be written up based on existing agreements?


Anyone have experience drafting one of these? Would really like to get one written up. I’m in the UK.


I would just adapt an existing agreement that you feel is pretty close to what you want…though I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice. :wink:

I think it is better to entrust this kind of work to a lawyer because you can make a big mess.
