I have an opportunity to do freelance work for this new community news website.
AOL has launched it. The model is an on-line, community based, news website. If you go to Patch.com you can see the states where they have patch communities and then you can select the community that you want to look at.
There is a contract that I would have to sign that gives them copyright to my sold photos. They will pay me a set price for the photos. They will pay me into my paypal account. I need to give them a W-9.
I came across it honestly, I was shooting a basketball game and saw a reporter and asked him if he would need some photos. Gave him my card and talked to him a bit. He was the editor for a Patch.com community. He gave my name to the editor to the community where I live and she called me.
It all seems pretty cool. Anyone else heard of them or doing any freelance for them?
If I give them the copyright on my photo does that mean that I can not put it on my website?
