if a newspaper publishes my hub in their paper, do they have to pay me?
Pretty Legal thing ..
I do thing they should... its a matter of originality of a hub writer just like any other writer or Editor.
This is pure speculation on my part...
I do not believe the paper has to pay you, unless you entered into a cotractual agreement. If, however, your work was duplicated without permission, or at least acknowledgement, you should be due some compensation through legal means from copyright infringement.
A newspaper will never publish an article that has been lifted straight from the internet. Once an article is in the public domain, they may legally re-write the article or lift facts and quotes from it for free. Even if you have emailed your article to the features editor - and then they publish it - they do not have to pay you. It would be your responsibility to invoice the accounts department or the company that publishes the newspaper and chase them for the payment.

How do you set a fee for a freelance project? I've been working through Elance but have no idea what kind of fees to set in my proposals. How do you determine what to charge, and what are some average prices? I don't want to be over the top expensive but I don't want to cheap out on myself either....
