I designed the logo and created the brand (letterhead, business cards, signage, advertising, etc.) for my husband's company. I did this for free and there are no contracts of any sort involved.
His business partner is trying to buy him out of the company. Currently, most of the company's worth is in the brand that I have created.
My question is, who owns the designs? Do I own them since I received no compensation and did not sign anything to release them? Would it be assumed that they were created for use by the company and thus belong to the company?
I would appreciate any guidance you could offer. Thanks!
