The answer depends on the contractual agreements you have with the client. It should be remembered that if this is the first project with a client, there must probably be an accompanying MSA (Master Services Agreement) to which you must refer in your project. 9. Ownership of delivery items: The customer recognizes and accepts that all copyrights and other intellectual property rights on any software, technology, information, data, documents and other work developed by Ixxus and/or made available to the customer under this Agreement («Delivery Components»), Ixxus or its licensee belong. Delivery items relating to a specific software product that ixxus has made available to the customer and licensed under a separate agreement are considered part of the software product to which they relate and can be used by the customer under the same conditions. In all other cases, the customer has a non-exclusive right and licence for the use of delivery items for any use strictly necessary for the use of the services provided in the context of these services. In the event that all delivery components provided under this contract include or contain third-party proprietary software and hardware and/or open source software and hardware («third-party software»), the customer recognizes and accepts that third-party software may be subject to separate licensing conditions («Third-party licensing conditions»). Accordingly, (i) the customer, where reasonably asked by Ixxus to enter into third-party licensing agreements, that Ixxus must require any relevant licensee of third-party software in order to compel its customers to enter into a conclusion; and (ii) the Customer undertakes to comply with all applicable third-party licensing conditions with respect to third-party software, including, but not only, third-party licensing conditions that are included in the SOW or are attached to the delivery element. MSA is a contract between an agency and a client in which both parties agree to the terms and conditions governing future transactions or agreements, such as the work account.
Simply put, a soW or work instruction is an agreement between a client and an agency, a contractor or a service provider that defines what is included in a project and what is not.
