    Question Contract wording: What to do with unused logo iterations?

    For example, if a client hires me to produce two logos/icons, and in the process of doing that, I create several finalized iterations... who retains ownership over unchosen versions?

    What if all/some iterations are based on clients rough vision/idea (notice underline)?

    How do you handle this?

    I think it would be great to use the non-chosen versions for other business-related things (iStockPhoto, other clients, personal use, list goes on...)

    On the other hand, I do not want them to have ownership over all versions.. just the two they paid for.

    What is the standard way to approach a situation like this? Should I just accept the fact that the unused versions are to permanently stay on the cutting room floor (for both me and the client)?

    Any tips, links, advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers. M

    Put a clause in your contract that covers ownership of drafts. i.e. just transfer ownership of the final approved version and specifically state that you retain ownership of unused concepts.
