regarding copyrights.... if a client is resolute in stating in the contract that the code/app/copyright becomes their property, would you sign the contract? I'm curious are there more developers would sign or decline and loose the business?

What a strange thing to say. Obviously the client still owns copyright of anything they pass to you (assuming they own copyright themselves). Just because a client gives you some source material to work with, doesn't meant that you suddenly own copyright to it. -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
