Our small non-profit executive director created our website and much of the content (other content, logos, all photos etc, was provided to her by myself). Upon her stepping down as Executive Director, she deleted the website and all of its content. Apparently she feels that since she created it, it is hers. Because she created it as Executive Director and the website was a job responsibility of hers, wouldn't the intellectual property and the website belong to the organization? There are no paid “employees” of the non-profit, but she did have an official title and is (was until this week) on the non-profit legal paperwork, checking account, etc. We are trying to recover the content because it is a big hit to the non-profit to lose all of our web content, it’s formatting, links, material, etc. Note, we have tried to have moderator access to the website from the start, but she has always been possessive and protective of it – now we apparently know why. Thanks.
