13. Any licenses for items that are held by me for content used in the Project will be transferred and provided to you as required.
14. For all materials that are created by me and used in the Project, I give you a worldwide, exclusive and irrevocable license to use them. This license includes the right to publish, distribute, communicate, broadcast, edit, modify, and create derivative works from these materials.
15. Where the content I deliver to you is created by me specifically for the Project, I assign all worldwide intellectual property rights (such as copyright) in those materials to you.
16. Any work performed by you during your contract with Teakie shall be considered a “Work Made for Hire” as defined in US Copyright laws, and shall be owned by and for the express benefit of the Company.

I also agree that you do not need to attribute me as the creator of any of these materials.

22. I reserve the right to display your work of the present mandate on my website.
23. The federal laws of Canada govern these terms and we submit to the jurisdiction of the courts there. Any notice we provide to each other must be in writing and sent through the Site.
