Okay so in my freelance work I have been selling the illustrations/ artwork and all the rights as part of the contract.
Recently I read that you could make more money if you sell only one of the rights to the artwork, specifying where and for how long they can use the artwork.
This would allow me to resell the rights of the artwork down the road. My question is how would I do this?
In the same article they mentioned putting in the contract that the client has to return all artwork when the time is up. How does this work with digital files?
So I guess what I am really asking is I do a job, now what do I give the client? How do I make sure they don't misuse my artwork? So that I can just sell this single right for a limited time?
Thanks in advance for all replies.
