    You would not normally be expected to give up copyright. You should ask them what their contract with you as a photographer will be. Amoung the things you need to know are:

    * What percentage of any sale will go to you.
    * How are the images to be licenced (royalty free or rights managed).
    * Will they require the images on an exclusive basis or can you personally provide them for use elsewhere eg another stock library.
    * Can you get the images deleted from their stock library if you decided you wish to do so in the future.
    * Read their contract.

    Hope this helps.

    This would be them perhaps ?

    It says

    Quote: We'll be glad to send you a copy of our complete Information for Artists, which includes further details on our artist-relations principles, our submission procedures, and our marketing plans.

    They seem well intentioned, although they haven't actually started yet.
