Home Forums Other Contract – Payment For Your Work Re: Contract – Payment For Your Work


Just want to clarify one part:

It is up to you, the designer of the website, whether you hand over IP rights on completion of a project. You don’t, by law, have to.

In some countries, copyright is handed over upon completion of a project, whether or not stated in the contract. In most cases, copyright is maintained with the designer though.

But make sure to do as @Brightonmike and put it in your contract regardless!
