When a contract with a client stipulates the the client should own the copyright, <snipped>
ceding the copyright to the client. I don't see why the same wouldn't apply to scrolls, especially if the scribe actually printed "copyright [date] [name]" somewhere on the scroll (presumably on the back).

When I first started creating award scrolls about a year ago, I was told (or I read somewhere) that the artist should always add a copyright symbol to the back of the work, and to sign and date it...this is all I have ever done...no fees or paper-filing involved.
It was always my understanding that scribes were necessary, desired, but unappreciated (in terms of accolades) lot; in this case I feel as Baron Tigranes does; that my work is a gift to the recipient...and as of present, most of my designs are adaptations of stuff I`ve seen somewhere anyway--so I don`t consider them to be my EXCLUSIVE work--only by the fact that I had to reproduce it on my own...
I would hope that the recipients appreciate my work for the spirit in which it was given, and what it represents, and not for what future profit may be gained from that work...
