Company offered me software deal/royalty possibility need advice??
Posted on 2004-09-04
The company that I work for has offered me 10% of each sale for a program I have created on my OWN TIME. I believe this program could be worth quite a bit. I was wondering if any of you guys are getting any royalties and at what percentages. They want me to sign the rights over to them and give them exclusive sales rights. Do you think these terms are fair? I would love to sell it on my own but I don't have the power of a company behind me, although I stand to make more from it if I go it alone. It appears software patents are VERY expensive. What do you think I should do? I haven't signed the contract yet?? Best advice/solution will get the points.
