Technically speaking, your programmer is going to own the copyright on the software (you'll have a non-exclusive license). You can have him contractually assign the ownership to you, or you contractually get an exclusive license in perpetuity.

Work-for-hire doesn't apply to computer programs written by contractors. It only applies to programs written by employees or to output from contractors who perform certain specific jobs enumerated in the copyright act (Title 17), such as motion picture contractors.

Hiring out software development is really tricky, and is worth consulting an experienced attorney to help your draft the contract if a project has growth potential.

ok, thats with programmers. How it goes if i need a JV partner for an info product. I provide the concept and break down of topics. Need someone who can make it compelling along with a sales page. Does it work and how?
