Question posted in the Intellectual Property Law category relating to Gauteng

I am a freelance designer. I did a website design job last year which was approved by client. In ym Ts&Cs it states that until the full amount has been paid the designs still belong to me. During that time only the 50% deposit required was paid. 

The website has now been made live and I have still not been paid the outstanding amount. The client who i did the work for does not respond to calls, emails or whatsapps.

I have all the communications between me and the client.

They are in breach of contract. Please advise
