Artwork – How Long To Archive & Should You Charge To Supply
14th June, 2009 by Tracy-lee Adams
I was wondering what AGDA's comments were for artwork archiving and charges to clients.
You produce X amount of artwork for Client A over a period of 15 years.
With a change of management Client A decides they would like all of their artwork as they will now start producing items internally.
A) Willing spend endless hours de-archiving (in your own time) and supplying DVDs of artwork without charge :-(
B) Charge for the endless hours EVEN THOUGH the client initially paid for the artwork and therefore owns the artwork rights - OR do they after a certain period of time passes?
C) Remind the client you only archive the previous year of files and have some knowledge you and your company will not be sued?
Any comments here would be welcome.
