Mr. X paid me to develop 5 websites and 1 online system. Also, he paid my friend (graphic designer) for making graphic designs for 15 other projects. We created all these projects and he paid us for them.
He created screenshots of all these projects, published them on his company's website and claims that they are projects created by his corporate team.
Can he publish projects as works of his company if the two of us have never given up copyright? We never signed any paper allowing him to publish projects for someone else's work. If he acts illegally, what can we do?
But that's not all. Mr. X created screenshots of my friend's projects that Mr. X had nothing to do with and also claimed to have been created by his corporate team. These are purely my friend's projects.
We are from Slovakia (I apologize for the grammatical errors). Do we have the right to file a criminal complaint for copyright infringement? If we get paid for the projects, can Mr. X pass them off as his own?
