Taking the Mystery and Fear Out of Your Legal Agreements
If you're completely comfortable drafting legal agreements for your design services, then you won't be interested in what Docracy has to offer. But for the rest of us the site offers a welcome solution to a stressful aspect of freelancing.
The concept is deceptively simple: provide a wide range of lawyer-vetted legal agreements that visitors can download at no charge. That alone is handy enough and those crafted specifically for designers, such as AIGA's Standard Form of Design Services, should be the first place you look. But the site also makes it possible to complete and execute versions of its contracts online. These are technically valid and legally enforceable, it would seem, since the site is ESIGN Act compliant. All without the $150 per hour pricetag. In the above brief clip, Docracy's founders provide an overview of the service at the recent TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon, which it won.
