I am currently negotiating a license agreement with a former client that I have stopped developing for. It was up till now just work based on a verbal agreement. Now as we are going seperate ways we are making sure we are both protected.

As it stands I own the IP and the copyright on the site has my name on it. I will be licensing to them to use and to modify themselves as they need. Once the license is setup, what should that copyright on the site say, and how will it change as they develope the site further?
