so say i design a site for someone, is that design copyrighted to only that one business? does that need to be discussed or is it automatic?
if i design a site for one business and another business likes the same design but wants it with different colors (and logos of course) can i do that or would i have to clear it with the first business?
this is all moot if im designing both from a previously established template of course.
websites, or at least the visual design, outside of a trademarked logo are NOT copywritten. so in that case you could take elements of a page you developed for company/client #1 and then use it for company/client #2.
