The clause is generic language, and will apply to everything you produce under
the contract/ The contract should also contain language that specifies you are
doing work for hire, that anything you create on behalf of the client under the
contract becomes the property of the client upon payment. If you are doing work
for other clients or for yourself, you should include a rider specifically
excluding that work.
