[thelist] Charging for copyrights

I've always used the "best practice" of telling my clients up front that
THEY automatically own all copyright to the site content, graphics, and
photography.  The only place I will prefer to hold copyright is for original
(done by my firm) programming included in the site.

I think there's something a bit unethical about having a client hand over
their graphics, photos, and content drafts, and then telling them that
somehow you, as the web team, own their work.
