I take back my last post, you basically said the correct thing here. I don't think OP needed to clarify further. Everything was pretty obviously communicated in his first post and everyone's jumping on the dude like a bunch of piranhas.
A little clarification is nice, which the op just did, and that was quite good of him.
A lot of the work done for companies needs to be lined out in the contract made at the when the two begin to work together. Everything is negotiable, it all just depends on what you are willing to give up, and how bad a company wants you or your work.
As for jumping on him, I was just point out some serious problem with his initial criteria. Much of the way it is worded is pretty much automatic red flags. Mentioning that the work will remain property of the company and no mention of negotiation. Only users of spesfic services of communication? This brings thought of a plan that isn't well thought out and has a high chance of falling through.
And the URL, although a very moot point, again doesn't seem to have much effort. As frivolous as it seems, a .COM a .ORG or a .NET have the most professional look, and the highest chance of being taken seriously.
Yes I know what the OP said about being an unprofessional styled team, which also harms the legitimacy of the original request.
If someone understands the risks of those working conditions, and still wants to give it a shot, then fine. That is more than alright by me. I hope everyone does right by one another and makes a couple bucks.
It would just be a shame to see something go wrong later and one or the other, or both get screwed out of something possibly good just because some poor wording in the initial meeting.
