The Contract Process
There are two types of contract that we use with you as an instructor and we've tried to make the process of working with these as painless as possible!
When we first deal with you for the very first time, you'll need to sign our "Master Services Agreement". It stipulates our working terms, and covers issues such as assigning ownership of content, how we pay you, how we deal with issues such as plagiarism, and how you're able to use content on your own site.
Once you have signed the Master Services Agreement, you can start working on your tutorial or course. All the details of each tutorial should be agreed with your editor (cost, delivery dates, length, and so on).
In some cases, there may be a need for a more formal agreement for a particular tutorial/course (or series), rather than just agreeing the details via email. In this case, you will be sent a "Project Order" to sign.
When you submit content, it may often include content that you want to keep the rights to. This might be a set of personal photographs, a WordPress theme, graphics, icons, or anything else. If you do not want to assign the rights of this part of the tutorial or course to Envato, just let your editor know.
