You Need a Portfolio Clause
YOU NEED A PORTFOLIO CLAUSE
A “portfolio clause” will give you the right to use your client work in your portfolio and marketing.
Here is the one I have used for more than 1,000 project contracts.
Start adding this to your contracts...
PORTFOLIO RIGHTS: Vendor retains the nonexclusive, perpetual and worldwide right to display, reproduce and distribute the designs in Vendor’s portfolio and website, and third-party trade publications, awards or exhibits, solely for the purpose of promoting or exemplifying Vendor’s work, and the right to be credited with copyright ownership and authorship of the designs in connection with such use.
This clause also gives you the right to submit the work for awards and publications etc.
Your work has value beyond just the money the client pays.
The right to use the work you create in your portfolio is extremely valuable.
Do you already use a portfolio rights clause?
