How to determine infringement?
Keep a tab on the market; people in similar or allied fields. Be extremely cautious while outsourcing your ‘creative’ work or while hiring a contractor. Copyright resides with the creator or author. Hence, legal agreements need to be pre-decided in order to allow transfer of copyright before expiration of contract. Agree with contract workers, before hands.
