My wife, a software developer, was contracted to program a product last year. She completed her part of the contract (the product met all the agreed upon standards, and was finished within the alotted time.)
The company did get the product and they are using it.
However, she was never payed the full agreed upon amount. But in that time in her life it wasn't worth the hassle of getting a lawyer and going through the courts, etc etc.
A few weeks ago we started our own computer consulting business. And we would like to see about selling the product she created. She still has all the source code, and setup files, and everything. My question is: would the company that contracted her to create the product have any legal recourse against us, if we did sell it?? Is it her Intellectual property? Is it theirs? Does it matter that she didn't get payed?
Is their someway/how we can change it enough to get around any legal problems, if they exist, as in changing name/logos/color scheme??
