I had a client phone me up recently to question me about the copyright terms that I emailed to her. It basically stated that she had unlimited usage rights in perpetuity - bar making adaptations or altering the logo in any way. Apparently, her husband had told her that it's a bit dodgy for me to keep the copyright and she told me that she couldn't understand why I would keep the copyright. She also expressed concern about the possibility of ending up being sued. I have been reading up on this a little but when the direct question of "why" came up over the phone I was a little confused as to what I should reply with. I said that I wanted to maintain the legal ability to display the work in my portfolio which is why I don't automatically hand the copyright over but even to me this sounded a little hollow. Ultimately she offered up more money to buy the copyright but the conversation just felt a little awkward, had she questioned me further I don't think I'd have coped well. Is it just a case of, I designed it, I get the rights? (Not that that is a bad thing) How do you guys handle these situations?
