UNFORTUNATELY, YOU DON'T OWN THE WORKS THAT YOU OUTSOURCE
Outsourcing of works to freelancers or subcontractors, such as software development, the writing of blog content, and the creation of logo’s and drawings, are owned by the person which authored them, ie: the freelancer or subcontractor. Well strictly speaking the copyright to the works is owned by them.
This means that you, as the business owner, do not even own the copyrights to your own works, unless the freelancer or subcontractor assigns such copyrights to you.
HOW TO REGAIN OWNERSHIP OF YOUR OUTSOURCED COPYRIGHTED WORK
The law allows for copyrights to be assigned, or transferred from the subcontractor or independent contractor to you, but only if the transfer is by way of a written agreement signed by each of you.

You just need to insert a few details into the agreement before it’s ready for use in your business. If you want, you can get one of our caffeine dependent life-forms, a.k.a lawyers, to help you complete it for a small charge.
