Subject: FLASH: Business practices...

Hi Everyone,

I am (hopefully) soon going live with my first Flash site and was considering
the implecations should I decide to leave this job afterwards. My current job
is full time contract work as a web master, and this new Flash site is
supposed to supplant the one I am now managing.
I was wondering what a Flash developers common practice was concerning the
original .FLA files should he/she move to another job? In other words, if I
should leave my current job, would I be obligated to leave the .FLA files of
this new site I created to the next web master who takes my place?
I had heard somewhere that it was common practice to retain your .FLA files
and leave the client with just the end product, but I don't remember the
rationale behind this. Though it would tick me off if someone else meddled
with my previous work, it would seem that the client has a right to maintain
the site and modify it (as they own it) even after I'm gone, without having
to hire a new Flash developer to recreate the site.
This may be a bit selfish, but I hope I'm wrong about this.


OT - That salary calc is pretty accurate in my case...except it only listed a
few of my skills. I think they should expand the list to include more vector
and 3D graphics programs...
