Need more info. If he comes up with any of the story he may very well deserve co-creator status. If he really has nothing to do with the story why do you need him?

I agree, this is very situational. If you were responsible for creating the likenesses and overall design of the characters, but nothing more, I would say you would have rights to the "character design creator", but that's about it. If ALL writing is coming from another party, that individual is also involved in the creation process and should also carry "creator" status. Not enough information to give you a good solid answer however.

thanks, i have an animated series in the works and this guy was hired on as a writer, i supplied him with all backgrounds and info on characters etc.... i just think he was being a little greedy asking for 3 different titles as well as any possible merchandise. thanks for your comments guys !!!

As I see it, you can either bring him on as a creative partner, sharing writing and characterisation duties etc, or you can just get him to work-for-hire, where he will only be credited as a writer and have zero priviledges upon your Intellectual Property. Same way John Bryne doesn't own Superman.
