Who owns the legal rights to the work created by Assemble freelancers?

The customer. Assemble’s focus is on providing world-class freelancers to the customers who want to work with them – not intellectual property. Our contracts provide that all work created by Assemble freelancers is the property of the customer, not Assemble or the freelancer.

How do we ensure that our IP is protected?

Assemble enters into work agreements with every member of our freelance network. Through these agreements, Assemble obtains exclusive ownership of the work created by the Assemble freelancer that works with you. We then provide you with the intellectual property for the work that the Assemble freelancer creates for you under our client agreement. This clean, simple, pass-through arrangement has worked well for our customers for many years. However, if you would like the freelancer to enter into a direct agreement with you to effect the direct transfer of IP property, we can work with you to ensure that your needs are met.

How much does Assemble cost?

How often will I be charged? How are payments and invoices handled?

For projects, we invoice either 50/50 or 33/33/33. For recurring expertise, we invoice once a month, though there is some flexibility if needed.

What methods of payment do you accept?

We currently accept all major credit cards, ACH, bank wires, and PayPal.
