Copy Right Act_9

Can I transfer my copyright?

Copyright can be 'assigned' (sold or given away) by the execution of a written document signed by the copyright owner. It is also possible for you to grant a copyright license, for a limited period of time, for specified forms of reproduction and merchandising, and in limited countries throughout the world. It can be for a specified flat fee or royalty, or both. In this way, you keep the copyright, and control over the merchandising, and still generate income, with the client also achieving their commercial aims.
