Hypo 1: Our client Sara is a graphic designer. Sara designed a logo for her client Bob. Bob loves his logo but was upset when Sara used his logo on her online portfolio (which is a place where she displays her work, both to showcase her work to the public and for potential clients to review.) Bob is demanding that the logo be removed. Here is the relevant provision of the contract that was drafted by Sara. Assume for the purposes of this hypo that the contract is valid. /// For $200 Sara irrevocably assigns and transfers to Bob all rights, title, and interest to and the copyright in the Logo. Sara retains no rights in the Logo and is only granted a non-exclusive license to make reproductions of and publicly display the Logo non-commercially. // *
Based on the licensing provision, did Sara have the right to use the logo in her portfolio? If so, why? If not what would you do to clarify the contract to avoid future disputes?
