27 - 27 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 7 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen What you should do yourself and what needs to be left to the experts (part 1) It all depends on Financial aspects The subject of the agreement The parties to the agreement The strategic elements of the contract Lawyers cannot contribute to the substance of an agreement about new media Use an agreement specialist (also can merc. jur.) to pre-empt problems The new media producer can do a lot him/herself to deal with problems (only use lawyers as a last resort)

31 - 31 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 7 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen A few rules of thumb Watch out for ”standard” terms of business Make sure you have an unambiguous distribution of responsibility: Who has to deliver what, when and how to a given quality standard? What are the terms ”on time, on budget, at the right place and in the right way” defined? Specify the deliverables in as precise a way as possible Keep in mind ”good practice” in the field in question Finish the contract before you start delivering services and deliverables. Draft a contract while everyone is still on good terms. If something is not specified explicitly then it should be covered by ”background art” Make sure that you write down everything that might apply. Finish the contract before you accept the quotation. Makes sure you don’t let the contract get sidetracked into blue smoke and mirrors. Stick with Danish law and Danish courts!

32 - 32 - Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Project Management and Production of Digital Content PDI E2005 Session 7 Peter Looms & Tine Sørensen What determines whether the contract is good or bad? A management instrument that consists of a set of unambiguous rules of the game A document that pre-empts conflict A result that is of mutual benefit to all parties involved A result that confirms that the negotiated substance is legally binding and moves from the informal to the formal domain
