A good friend of mine is a freelancer who often gets in more work than she can handle herself. If available, I’ll take it on – maybe 10 hours a month. In these cases, she serves as project manager, handling communication between me and her client. I guess I assumed her client knew that she had someone assisting her on these designs, but now I know that has not been the case. Not only that, I just discovered some work I designed is featured on her website portfolio.
Though I’m not as confrontational as I should be, I brought it up and she said we both have the right to put the work in our portfolios. That doesn’t seem right to me – what do you think? What’s legal and ethical in this situation?
