    Hi Rich, without a contract in place you don't have much recourse at all outside of just asking them to pay you. Otherwise you can get a lawyer and try that route - but good luck proving they stole your work. Unless it's copied exactly (and I am NOT a lawyer) and maybe has your name on it somehow, it would be a tough sell in court.

    I think the idea that context is key is very important (Yoni) and the idea that we should also make sure to look within the demographic for the project (Shani) is also important. Thanks for all the comments, thoughts, and ideas. It's very interesting ... love to hear more.
