Arts Law does not offer refunds or exchanges on standard agreements or publications. For other points, please contact us accordingly, check if you have concluded the essential aspects of your agreement. Ask yourself if there is enough information for the parties to keep their promises. A protocol can be considered an „agreement of agreement“ – they are supposed to summarize an agreement as a whole. These are not binding contracts. For the agreement to be legally binding, each party must promise something to the other party in exchange for something else. For example, the buyer promises money in an agreement on the sale of a car and in return the seller promises the car. Whether it`s a document you sign or accept means you`re bound by its terms, it`s a very important issue. It is also important that you understand your rights and obligations in the document. You should seek legal advice to ensure that you have the information you need to make an informed decision about whether you are signing the document or what to do if you have already signed it. Arts law provides legal advice on documents, including contracts on a daily basis.
Last year, there was 653 cases of contracting, agreements, declarations of intent and deeds.

You may have wondered what the difference was between a contract and an act, or whether different types of agreements are binding. This article briefly summarizes some of the most worn forms of documents in the arts and their differences. Keep in mind that, whatever the form, you should always seek legal advice before entering into agreements with others about your artistic practice.

It is usually an agreement that, after further negotiations, concludes a more specific and comprehensive contract or a broader agreement at a later date or in the event of special circumstances. After development and signature, a Memorandum of Understanding can be used as a reference guide if negotiations continue and the parties are successful in reaching a final agreement. Therefore, if you are drafting an agreement with the intention that the agreement is non-binding, it is important to know how an agreement can inadvertently become binding. To be legally applicable, the agreement must contain all the essential conditions of the agreement. Often, agreements are not a complete agreement.
Parties may leave several key concepts unresolved because they have not yet made up their mind. If you give an organized structure to your MoU, you can clearly represent the will of the parties and communicate your agreement effectively. The guide can also help you make your office of intent legally binding inadvertently. A Memorandum of Understanding should be presented as a general guide: a Memorandum of Understanding, sometimes referred to as an agreement, is generally used as an interim written agreement before a formal contract is concluded between the parties. Although it is not a legally binding document, it can be used during the negotiation phase to express a common understanding and vision between the two parties involved. Even though MoUs are so broad in themselves that they are global and non-binding agreements, there are cases where a MoU as a whole can become legally binding, even if you did not anticipate it. A Memorandum of Understanding is a formal agreement between two or more parties, usually by government organizations, non-governmental organizations and, to a lesser extent, by companies. A moU is not a „binding document,“ i.e. it is not written to create an enforceable legal contract (unless you do so intentionally – see step 3).
But as a formal document, MoUs are often referred to as „meeting spirits“ between the parties.
