This Beta Reader non-disclosure or copyright contract was created with authors' copyright in mind.
In general, most Beta Readers are not authors. There are beta reading services that offer critques on your manuscript for free without any sort of obligation. These people are avid readers, editors, retired teachers and people looking to read good books while offering help to those in need.
However, as more authors connect we find authors beta reading for other authors and sometimes the lines get blurred. In comes the idea to make things clear from the beginning.
This contract does not have a cost attached, as beta readers don't usually charge for the service. If, by chance you wish to pay someone for the service, simply create another payment agreement. This agreement only covers your copyrights, what the beta reader can and cannot do, along with the basics of the service.
