I know I should have sorted this out prior to having it done but it didn't cross my mind and I'm not sure what my legal rights are.
I approached a freelance artist to draw an image for my website, for some reason I can't find the original spec I sent him but it was along the lines of "A computer picture this size with every element in the picture also provided as a separate PNG [for use on my website]".
The work has been completed, we had a good relationship and I love the work!
Now however I'm confused about my rights with this work. I assumed that because I paid for it and it is original I can do whatever I want with it, is this assumption correct?
For example can I sell this artwork? Can I redistribute parts of it in commercial software? Do I own all rights to that work of art?
I will obviously contact him and make sure we are both on the same page but I just want to confirm my position here before I start redistributing it.
