Logo Design Copyright Transfer Form Template for Download


Logo design copyright is quite a different beast to that of a Trademark and Registered Trademark, so it's very important to know the difference between them.

So with that said, this Transfer of Copyright form is simply a means for you to pass over your ownership of a logo to your client, which should be as simple a process as possible for the client.

The link (above) will download a ZIP archive of an: InDesign file CC7 & CS4 (without fonts), and a PDF (with embedded fonts) for the updated: Logo Design Copyright Transfer Form Template, all ready for you and your client.

All it really requires is a dated signature, but it's nice to pad it out a little to make it feel a little more substantial.

I still forget on occasion to initiate the Transfer of Copyright after a logo design project has been completed, but as far as I'm concerned, the client automatically owns all copyrights once they have paid the final balance.

I think I'll add a mention of this to the Freelance Logo Design Proposal and Invoice Template, and also as a 'note' in the Invoice, just so the client is aware of this from the start.

Feel free to use this as is, or change the layout/contents as you see fit (obviously remove all instance of my name and details). The download includes an InDesign file (without fonts), and a PDF (with embedded fonts).
