    Copyright transfer

    Recently a commision-based salesperson left us, taking a few clients with him. He's built a website for his new business and is featuring screenshots of his 'new' clients, the websites which we created. Our contract doesn't stipulate what is transferred on completion, it just says that the client 'owns' the website when final payment is made (after reading a previous article here we will be changing this now!). My dilemma is, do we have any rights to prevent him using screenshots of our previous clients' designs?

    Many thanks
    Paul

    Only thing I can think of off hand is if you had the screenshots on your website and claimed them as copyright images. However, I'm not a lawyer, so as always seek professional legal advice.
