Default Logos and copyrights?

I run a logo design business where I have outside designers come in and design logos for clients. How should I go about transferring the copyrights to the client?

Should I have the designers agree to send the copyrights to the clients if their logo is selected? How would I go about doing this?

Hi E39.

Wrong kind of copyright This is the "copywriting" forum... as in writing the text that appears on websites, in brochures, etc.

"CopyRIGHTing" is the legal protection of written works, logos, etc. That's through the US Library of Congress. You can check there.

I'm moving your question to the General Small Business Issues section. As far as I know, there is no form or anything, but maybe somebody else would know for sure.

It was moved. See up at the top of the screen? It now is located under the General Issues > General Small Business Issues section instead of the Copywriting section.

Copywrite is simply an issue over ownership. If in the original contract it is written that the copyright will be "assigned" to the client, this will be done as per the contract, with the client now being the legal owner.
