We are working with a client who is having his analytics data held hostage by his previous developers. They are claiming that their contract states that they own the data, but I'm wondering if showing ownership of the site might be enough to stop them from holding the data hostage. Does anyone know if our client has any leverage against the claims of his previous developers??
I'm a bit worried that a contract DOES have the power to lock a client out of that data, but it just seems... criminal... for someone to do that to a client.
