Although the article provides some excellent material on the financial
side of employment v. contracting, it does not discuss a very important
topic, particularly for writers: intellectual property ownership. In
general (although every situation may be different and should be evaluated
by a lawyer), the copyright in work prepared by an employee within the
scope of his or her employment is owned by the employer under U.S. law --
but work performed by an independent contractor is owned by the independent
contractor (absent an agreement/contract to the contrary).
