Work-for-Hire Agreement

I just want to point out that the graphic artist who created the Nike swoosh symbol received $35 for his design. That's all he has ever received for it & It became the sole property of Nike to be used by the company and altered (color, size etc) in any way they seem fit. They commissioned it & they own it. That is pretty standard and spelled out that way legally under the copyright acts. It does not strip the artist from being recognized as the creator/designer etc. All recognition goes to them for that, but they are not able to make any profit on it because it belongs to those who commissioned the work.
