Re: Software Development Agreement

with changing legal emphasis over time, where in the world you are and specific issues, it is difficult to suggest a 'good' one. The examples seem to cover all the bases.

Compensation - perhaps hourly, daily or some other period, but I tend to charge fixed prices and require 40% at the start of the contract, 40% when ready for user testing and the balance of 20% on completion of user testing or a time limit, whichever is shortest

Only issue I usually have is around intellectual property rights. It depends but I believe these need to be restricted to work that is unique to the client - as a developer you save time and reduce costs by reusing code developed. e.g. data security and certain routines around invoice generation, data importers and the like - in return, the client pays a reduced price.

So things like 'what it looks like' belongs to the client, clearly the data belongs to the client, but I believe 'the way it does it' does not belong to the client. There are, after all, typically only a few ways to do something.
