the buyer owns the rights when I produce and deliver their video, and I have a buyer who, after delivering their video to them, they want a second version which removes all the text and any logos or overlays I placed. Essentially, they want a bare bones edit version. Do they have the right to this as well (free)?
Mind you, this is a client who expressed that my prices are too high for him, so I think he might be looking at cloning my video or recycling it with his own editing software if he can get his hands on the bare version. While I can’t stop anyone or chase them down if a modified version of my video ends up on the internet, if he has a right to this second version video, I want to do the right thing. Do buyers have the rights to have this basic edit version?
