Chapter 7 – Miscellaneous

7.50.14 Copyright – Separate Contractual Agreements

Notwithstanding any other provisions of sections 7.50.11 through 7.50.14, the district or the creator may enter into a separate contractual agreement. Such an agreement may: (1) limit or restrict the district's right of ownership, control or use or disposition over a work produced with the assistance, support or sponsorship of the district, or (2) increase or decrease the creator's share of the income derived from a creative work after the district has been reimbursed for all expenses incurred during the creation, development and production of the work.

Whenever either the district or the creator wishes to enter into a separate contractual agreement pursuant to this subsection, it shall be the responsibility of either party to negotiate the terms of the agreement prior to the beginning of the actual development of the creative work.
