Sample agreements

Arts Law's sample agreements have been created to assist low income creators and organisations in drafting contracts suitable for their needs. They are produced with explanatory notes and sample wording for each clause.

The sample agreements are available in different formats, for more information please read our guide to purchasing sample agreements. Please note that the non-editable PDF version cannot be copy and pasted from.

Please refer to Arts Laws' terms and conditions before using any of the sample agreements.

Notice: From 1.1.2011, the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) has been renamed the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and is known as the Australian Consumer Law. Matters previously regulated by the Trade Practices Act and various State and Territory consumer laws are now governed by the Australian Consumer Law which is administered by the ACCC, state and territory consumer agencies and, in respect of financial services, by ASIC. As a result, all references to the Trade Practices Act and State and Territory fair trading legislation in Arts Law's publications should now be read as a reference to the Australian Consumer Law. Arts Law is in the process of updating its publications accordingly.
