I’ve just been brought onto a not for profit board and in transitioning to do the new website, the old person has taken down the site when I handed him his last cheque, and seems to not want to hand over the website files.
Does anyone know the law in Canada or have dealt with this in the past?
His words were …
As mentioned previously, I have returned all property belonging to < NOT-4-PROFIT ORG < to you including images, copy, materials and any files. The website itself, images that I created and copy that I created are the property of < hist company name > as per copyright.
He was paid to build the site and then somehow also got the OK to charge $300 for web hosting, 4 + years of making easy month every month and to behave like this, vindictive almost…I dunno
Last thought, who does this to a Not for Profit. Thanks for any input or help
