Hi, Just to bump this topic. Just to clarify, if a company who sells prints of a specific design which was provided by a rouge designer ( someone copied a design of someone else), how would the company protect itself from any claims of damage as they would be unaware of false ownership?

Hi Andy, I think what you had referred mostly too is about maintaining the royalty rate which I believe could easily be done if there is an online platform. This will allow the designer to see live updates of sales of their designs and their payout. Royalty pay could be an alternative means of incom...

Thanks again for the clear response Andy and sorry for the delay in getting back! The designer finally got back to me and has agreed that the commission paid included all transfer of IP. Will this be sufficient enough or should I use an online facility which will enable them to upload their design a...

Hi, What is the best way to prevent a third party from ripping of images from a website.
