For example, the service provider maintains the IP for its process and the customer keeps its IP that is used to complete the service (i.e. the logo of the company used to make T-shirts). In addition, the customer usually obtains an exclusive revocable license for the use/sale of the IP for the duration of the relationship. It`s important to make sure your business doesn`t inadvertently transfer IP to the service provider. Customers should use service contracts when using a service provider to perform paid work in order to define the exact details of the agreement, including remuneration, obligations and confidentiality, if necessary. . . .
