This agreement covers whatever intellectual property rights you decide to sell. The description and specification is up you to agree with the buyer. It provides for a single and final payment. Once sold, the buyer can do what he likes with your invention or computer game, subject to the restrictions of the sale.
When you sell, you are parting with certain rights for ever. But that does not means that you cannot retain some or most of the total “basket” of rights. We assume that this sale will be of rights in a particular industry sector or field. That leaves you with many opportunities to sell other rights in different sectors or countries.
