Originally posted by Thomas Hayes I was afraid this would open a whole can of worms. I guess there is no correct answer, depends on which side you are on. I just got off the phone with a contractor who has some code I would like to buy and interface with my present code. He's willing but refuses to give me his source code BUT wants to see my code to interface the two. I have several hours(weeks) into this code and don't really want to share it if he's not willing to. I don't have any problems paying for code but when I buy it I want to own it. Its not like an OS were you are only really buying the right to use it and don't own it. Bottom line is to each their own point of view and I respect that. Clingpeach, if the guy works for you as an employee than demand he at least gives you a copy(he can still have one for himself for future use.)
