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.
Yes it does..thanks so much..
This would be them perhaps ?

They seem well intentioned, although they haven't actually started yet.
Thanks Keith, for some reason I couldn't find them, probably would be worth my while to try with a few images..thank so much for taking the time ...
