Learn more about Copyright License Agreement (Written Work)

A company's intellectual property is one of its most prized possessions. It is protected by copyright, which includes literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works, both published and unpublished. The author and/or owner of a copyrighted work can prevent others from copying, performing or using the work without its consent. As a third party, you must obtain permission to reprint a portion of the copyrighted work from the author or licensor. Failure to do so could result in substantial fines.

With a LegalZoom Copyright License Agreement, you can secure the right to use (but not own) the owner's creative works. You will provide detailed information about how the written material will be used and the extent of its incorporation into a publication or other work and the licensor will confirm it does, in fact, have the title to the desired items.

As a licensee, you will benefit from using a company's established image. The licensor, in turn, will benefit from your marketing efforts and can reduce cost and generate revenue as well.

Through a properly-drafted LegalZoom Copyright License Agreement (Written Work), the copyright holder will know that its rights are protected and the licensee will be well on the way to attaining rights to the written materials it needs to complete its work.
