In some cases, some of the rights in a work will be assigned by one party to the other, but other rights will merely be licensed.  For example, the assignor may need to retain some rights so that the works can be used in other contexts, or the works may already be being used elsewhere. This copyright agreement has been designed for this sort of situation.

The central concept used in the copyright agreement is the idea of deliverables. These are copyright works which have or will be delivered by the assignor to the assignee. In addition to the core licensing and assignment provisions, this agreement allows that the deliverables may contain works owned by the customer and/or works owned by the assignee. Each category of rights is handled separately.

The agreement assumes a one-off payment will be made with respect to the assigned and licensed rights, but may be adapted for other situations.
