What's a copyright license agreement for artwork?
Artists and other creators use copyright protections to keep their work from being used or sold without authorization. A non-exclusive copyright license allows a third-party licensee to use (but not own) a creative work while still protecting the owner’s copyright. There might be many reasons for licensing agreements. For example, licensing can allow a company to get the rights to make or sell products based on protected artistic material, generating revenue for both the owner and the licensee. This is easy to do with a copyright license agreement.
