About this copyright licence agreement

This is a simple licence agreement whereby a creator of original written work or artwork licenses his work to some other person for some specific reason. The work may be a photo image, a carton, a picture, an article or anything else. In the document we have assumed you have agreed to write a series of articles for a newspaper. However, you could as easily have agreed to allow your art to be used on posters and programmes to promote a special event. Maybe a singer wants to use your song. Maybe you want to licence your article to a website owner.

This document is written in Australian law but is suitable for use when your counter party is in some other jurisdiction and whatever countries you allow him to cover.

Alternatives to this agreement

If you expect to receive a royalty for commercial exploitation of your copyright work, use Licence to use name and trademark for merchandising in a different field: media or any industry: up front fee or royalty. That is a full version which you can edit easily to refer to your work. That document also covers many more options.
