Agreement Copyright

A non-exclusive copyright license agreement allows the licensee to use (but not own) the owner`s creative works. Licensing can help a company obtain the rights to sell or manufacture its own products efficiently and easily, while the licensee will be given an established name and reputation. The licensee`s marketing efforts in turn benefit the licensor`s works and reputation. Some commercial publishers, such as Elsevier, exploit a „nominal copyright“, in which they require the transfer of full and exclusive rights from authors to the publisher of open access articles, while copyright remains in the authors` name. [38] The assumption that this practice is a prerequisite for publication is misleading, given that even works in the public domain can be reused, printed and distributed by publishers. A third model is the „Browse Wrap“ or „Click-Wrap“ licensing model,[42] which is increasingly popular in the form of Creative Commons licenses: it allows anyone (including the publisher) to reproduce and distribute the work, with some possible restrictions. Creative Commons licenses are used by many open access magazines. [43] If your creative works are protected by copyright, you may have the power to determine who uses your works as . .
