Here are several free sample domain name purchase agreements for you to use. You may need to modify them to fit your unique circumstance, but these are good templates to follow.

These Domain Name Purchase Agreements are free and provided for your use as you see fit and at your discretion. These Agreement were created by Gene Quinn, a US patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com.  They were created for a particular situation and may not be appropriate for all users. You do, however, have the right to copy this Agreement and modify it as necessary to meet your needs and requirements.

While forms are commonly used and available elsewhere around the Internet it is important to understand the limitations provided by forms. A form, by its very nature, is previously written, usually to address a typical situation. Unfortunately, however, in law there are few typical situations. While this form will be useful for some, the use of a form cannot and does not supplant the need for competent legal advise adapted to your particular situation.  IPWatchdog, Inc. and Gene Quinn personally accept no liability if you do use this or a modified version of this Agreement.

Please realize that IPWatchdog, Inc. will not be able to answer questions about what changes could or should be made to this agreement given your particular situation, nor can we answer questions about what various provisions mean.

Copying or otherwise using the Agreement below signifies understanding and acceptance of theses Terms & Conditions.
