I am using oDesk content writers for my website. I'm wondering if I need to keep a few things in mind besides the actual content they are writings. Examples are:
- Should I credit them for the article (i.e. give them a by line)? I don't necessarily know their true identity. None of the writers have requested a by line but I think it may offer authenticity to my site. If I don't give them credit is it okay to make up a fictious writer or even myself (i.e. the real writer would be a ghost writer).
- Should I be concerned about them taking the content they create for me and selling it to other sites?
- Should I request the writers to sign a contract of some sort to ensure the work they create belongs to me?
