Most of us are a little confused about copyright issues. Luckily, few of you would have had to pay heavily for it, so far. A post at Threadwatch recounts the story of a poor regional tourism group whose website was hijacked by a cunning 'media production' guy who apparently retained copyright on everything he's developed for them over the last 3 years. That's pretty much every graphic, every word of content, every brochure produced, and -you guessed it- he owns the domain and is admin.
Now, this is a happy ending story in which the designs and other materials were so old and outdated that the company could ask the con guy to get lost. But the bigger import of the story is this is one issue which can't be left unattended.
