Just yesterday I received an email from the young lady I am designing a website for. It just so happens that she was listening to a talk show on the radio and they were discussing how it's important for the client to get claim to the website including all codes. She was worried about having rights to her website.

Now, this is my first paid freelance client and being that I work as a webmaster during the day for a company it never dawned on me the conflict that one might have regarding the copyrights to a web design. As a web designer I have a problem with a client being able to claim all rights to what I worked on. Yes a client has some say in the design idea, but it is my artwork that puts it all together. I have a problem with the possibility that another web designer can have the possibility to profit from my work and if their is any infringement I cannot make a claim. However, I do understand the importance of the client being able to make changes and fully use the design. No problem with the thought of maybe charging a client extra for the rights, but I still want to be able to claim the rights and profits to my designs. Does that make sense?

I have done some research, but have not found any information about a web designer providing a client copyrights and still being able to share infringement rights. I know this board is slow right, but I would like to know how other web designers handle this conflict.
