Any such assignment will not include preparatory work, or designs, concepts and proposals not accepted or taken forward for implementation by the Client and we may at our discretion use any such designs, concepts and proposals for any other purpose, including our work for other clients.
We grant to the Client an exclusive, limited, revocable licence to use the work produced by us for any project for a single use only and strictly for the purposes and in the territories defined in the Client’s original written brief, or as set out in the Proposal. This licence may be revoked by us by written notice to the Client in the event that the Client does not perform any of its obligations to us (including, without limitation, its payment obligations) or uses all or part of the work for purposes and/or in territories which have not been agreed by us. Further or additional use by the Client of the work may be permitted by us at our absolute discretion, subject to our agreement to and payment by the Client of additional fees and expenses to us and licence fees to third parties, such fees to be negotiated in good faith by the parties.
