To help you protect your rights, we have compiled a list of what to look for in a contract’s terms and conditions:

  1. Indemnification and Hold Harmless

It is essential to check the indemnification part. It decides who’s responsible if there’s a legal problem. Also, keep an eye out for words like “hold harmless.” They’re often used in the same way.

  1. Perpetual and Exclusive Rights

Watch out for words like exclusive and perpetual usage rights. They could mean giving up your rights forever, which could have long-lasting implications.

  1. Remedies and Choice of Law

Don’t overlook clauses on “remedies” for disputes and the “choice of law” or “jurisdiction.” They decide how legal problems will be solved and which state the rules apply.

  1. Long, Complex Paragraphs

Watch out for long, complex paragraphs hidden deep in documents; they often sneak in and conceal unfavorable terms that are easy to miss.

Remember, seeking legal advice is advisable for comprehensive understanding and protection. 

By understanding these red flags, you can approach legal documents with greater confidence and clarity. Follow us on https://www.facebook.com/surgelaw for more videos on protecting your business.
