I have a contract I created from other contracts that I have. I need you to take this contract and edit it to reflect exactly what I want. It is a contract that is a manuscript transfer for copyright. The manuscript is for a children's book that was copyright in 2008. The owner is going to sell it to me for $500.00. Can you take my manuscript and edit it to be legally acceptable as a contract that transfer all rights to me. I have already worked with the manuscript since the person already given it to me verbally. I renamed the story, had it edited, created characters for the story, had it completely illustrated, I bought the isbn and bar code for it, and had 50 books printed under my new company's name, Raining Knowledge. I do not want to put any more money into the printing, marketing, a promotion of the book until I have complete legal rights to it. Can you use my sample contract and fix it to reflect what I want legally want it to do; total ownership. Or can you create and give me a contract that will do what I want it to do? YOu can go to or I can send you the information I found at the copyright site that addresses this issue.
State/Country relating to question: California
I tried to create the contract myself using other contracts to guide me.
If you have a particular question I can assist, but the experts here cannot perform legal work such as writing or editing contracts
where is the accept button
oh you are talking to me now, ok
you said it is against policy to do what? Create my contract?
yes we cannot write contracts
I have no idea why you are not responding but I will call and find out what I am doing wrong.
responding to what?
the experts here provide legal guidance and information on the law, but we cannot perform any type of legal work (such as writing legal documents)
nor can we give actual legal opinions or advice.....all that requires an attorney-client relationship, which is not available here
thank you , they just hung up and told me they will give me a refund. take care
best of luck
