    Hello folks :)

    If I get a picture or logo designed by a friend that I intend to use on my website (likely the homepage background picture), do I need to get something signed so that they cannot come back years later and demand some of my website income?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the reply mate.

    How would I go about this? Surely I wouldn't have to go to a solicitor/Lawyer for this?
    Because if I do, I'd probably be cheaper to just buy a design from an established artist/graphic designer.

    Would permission to use as I wish via email suffice?

    Professional artist or not, have them create an invoice before payment that includes text saying ownership is yours after payment received. Keep any receipt for payment, such as paypal receipt or confirmation of mailing check, etc.
