Once you complete a project such as website design, who owns the copyright to designed site and elements?

Upon the completion of your project and final payment, the client “you”, have the rights to your website assets.

It is important to note that licensed images, audio or video materials are only licensed for your use and are not fully owned by you unless custom media services were ordered.

The same applies for Enterprise Content Management system customers where the Content Management System is leased for your use on a subscription basis only.

Please refer to your contract for more detailed information.
