good to know Composite1, as I generally use my own contracts, and I seldom give up rights to my work, except for magazine work, where they pay well, and use their contracts…. it always helps the negotiations when you open with “Your standard contract or mine?” “let’s compare” followed by “well I don’t mind SELLING you the full rights…”
so since I’ve ALWAYS been a stickler for written contracts, the whole work for hire issue has never been an issue for me.
