Go, Read: Mike Lynch On Under-Selling Your Work

Mike Lynch chimes in on the recent work-for-free discussions by noting that one way that cartoonists and other creative people are routinely asked to place a steep discount on their services is through the assumption of rights at the moment of acquisition that don't really have anything to do with the actual transaction taking place.
