Copyright assignment agreement

What's a copyright assignment agreement, and when do you need it?

Use this template assignment agreement to transfer your copyright ownership in specified materials to someone else.

Our template is drafted as a deed, which is a standard approach for agreements of this kind - deeds are like contracts, but the only significant difference is that all signatures to them are witnessed by independent third parties.

The point of including the witness is to make clear, unequivocally, that both the signing parties fully understood what they were signing and that they intended to agree to the terms.
