If I’m not mistaken, if a computer programmer writes an application it remains his intellectual property until it is bought form him in some form. Regardless which equipment it was written on- and who owns the equipment- the above holds true. So, by extension, if one were to program a show into a light board/computer, usually owned by a theatre, venue or hire company, then I’d assume to actual 'program'- the light ‘show’, for want of a better word- would belong to the programmer. For arguments sake, assume the show is programmed on a fixed rig, where only the programming is variable- no designer is present in the equation. This is obviously a little more on the legal side of things, but I’m curious as to how other technicians feel about the issue. Any ideas?
