I don't know how Electronic Punk feels, but I think that if a design is created by an outside party, it should still be Copyright osnn.net, so that if that person later on has a fallout with any of the admins, or the site they can't go "You are using my copyrighted design" and **** us over.

That will cost money...

I belive the rights would still belong to the designer. You'd really want a signed agreement witnessed by lawyers to be totally safe, which is where there money comes into the equation. Said volunteer may be perfeclty happy to design for free and provide for free. But if ever there's a fall out or disagreement of some kind....

Well here where I live, a verbal contract will hold up in court. So I am not sure if that counts with the site being out of state and country for that matter... haha.

But I think all the members here that are capable of doing this are cool enough and responsible enough not to pull any crap like that.

I know when we write code, as freelance, we are required to add a specified line just saying "Copyright (c) company name here mmm yyyy" and then they own it.

This would work for a site also, AFIK. Do that, no cost, everyone happy? :cool:

Yeah. I always request however that the code have my copyright on it, and that it is then used under a 2 clause BSD license.

smart guy...

but if I and my colleagues did that they would simply not want the code and freeze existant product base functionality I think....
