3.1. Insofar as nothing else has been agreed upon between Client and Designer, Designer grants Client exclusive use of the work (exclusive right of use), with the exception of any possible programming services.
3.2. Upon payment of the total fee and additional expenses, Client acquires the agreed-upon right of use to the works created in fulfilment of the commission, in the form in which they are delivered and for the agreed purpose and scope of use. If no agreement has been made as to the purpose and scope of use, the minimum scope necessary to the fulfilment of the commission shall apply. Every other or further future use can only be provided with the concurrence of Designer and against compensation.
3.3. Any modification, revision, or imitation of the works conveyed for use is inadmissible, so long as the right to alteration has not been previously granted in writing and against compensation.
3.4. The rights granted Client (or in the case of an agent, the agent’s customer) may only be conferred on a third party – whether gratuitously or for a consideration – with Designer’s express consent.
3.5. Client acquires no ownership of the designs, elaborations, or computer data. In the case of a singular succession, all rights and obligations devolve upon the legal successor; however, only within the scope agreed upon by Designer, DA, and Client. Any possible expansion of the uses by the legal successor requires under all circumstances the agreement of Designer, DA.
3.6. A licence for unrestricted right of use is required should Client wish to continue to use in unaltered form the concepts, ideas, or works that were developed or designed after either completion of, withdrawal from, or termination of a contract or service agreement. If said concepts, ideas, or works are to be altered, brought up to date, or utilised as the basis for further development by Client or a third party, the granting of the right to alteration by a third party is additionally required. A further agreement is also obligatory should Client wish to receive and keep the computer data.
