    I have a client that recently decided to bring their web development in house. While I hate losing a big client, they are requesting ALL of their migration files to include proprietary/custom tools that my team and I developed. I am requesting a one-time license fee for them to keep their site in working order but they have now said they don’t feel they owe this fee. I know this is going to be a learning lesson for me either way but wanted to see if any of you had experience dealing with a situation like this? Is there language I can include in my contracts moving forward that makes this license fee clear? ​ As info, in my contract that a previous manager (who’s no longer there) signed, I have the following statement, ” We’ll own any intellectual property rights we’ve developed prior to, or developed separately from this project and not paid for by you. We’ll own the unique combination of these elements that constitutes a complete design and we’ll license its use to you, exclusively and in perpetuity for this project only, unless we agree otherwise.” – by hq overview guysgirlbb – –
