Some questions I have about with this contract: (allowed for by section 11.5):
"including source code developed by Contractor ... generally applicable to other Customer projects"
I'm more then willing to sign over code that applies to projects I do for gigster, but not stuff that might possibly apply in general to gigster projects, since that would be literally everything else.
Particularly since this clause survives forever according to 4.2 and confirmed no time limitation by section 13. Section 7 says I can't sign this broad of a clause since it could apply to other contracts I have open and I have other contracts for other specific clients.
Signing over copyright for work I do for gigster: Cool
Signing over work for every other type of work I do (for example: open source work, upwork clients, toptal clients, employment, etc): Not cool
"Contractor agrees to indemnify Gigster from any and all claims, damages, liability, settlement, attorneys’ fees and expenses, as incurred, on account of the foregoing or any breach of this agreement"
So gigster can do something really awful and I can't seek damages? That doesn't seem fair unless gigster is planning on saying that they can't file suit against me either. Again section 8 seems to indicate that I can't file remedy against gigster violating this agreement.
"does not contain any third-party software, including without limitation, “open source,” “copy left,” “public” or other similar code or anything derived from or based on any of the foregoing"
So I can't derive code from examples from django or flask documentation, cited stack overflow snippets, etc. etc. in my work? I'm not sure that would be a very effective way to operate.
