Copyright can also be the subject of a legal agreement, such as. B a research, funding or publication contract, or may be transferred or transferred to third parties. In some countries, the transfer of copyright is not legally permitted and only a license is possible.  In some countries, such as the United States and the United Kingdom, copyright transfer agreements must generally be entered into in writing and signed by the person transferring the copyright. In many countries, when a worker is hired to create a copyrighted work for an employer, that employer is by default the copyright holder so that no copyright transfer agreement is required. In many countries that recognize the moral rights of authors, these rights cannot be transferred and copyright transfer agreements confer only economic rights.  In particular, a premium ownership contract will cover: critics argue that copyright in scientific research is largely ineffective in its proposed use, but that it is also wrongly acquired in many cases and virtually violates its fundamental objective of protecting authors and other scientific research. Plan S requires authors and their respective institutions to retain copyrights to articles without transferring them to publishers; also supported by OA2020. [Note 4] The researchers found no evidence of the need for a transfer of copyright for publication or, in all cases, where a publishing house exercised copyright in the best interests of the authors. Although one of the publishers` arguments in favour of copyright transfer is that they allow them to defend authors against copyright infringement, [Note 5] Publishers can assume this responsibility even if copyright remains in the hands of the author, as is the policy of the Royal Society. [Note 6] A copyright transfer contract or a copyright transfer contract is an agreement that transfers the copyright of a work from the copyright holder to another party.
It is a legal option for publishers and authors of books, magazines, movies, TELEVISION shows, video games and other commercial artistic works who want to include and use a work of a second creator: for example, a video game developer who wants to pay an artist to draw a boss to enter a game. Another option is to allow the right to include and use the work instead of transferring copyright. There may be more than one copyright holder in certain types of works where there are copyrights. In films, for example, the copyrights on the soundtrack, the screenplay and the film itself can be owned separately. 2. The owner holds all rights to the work and the work and reserves all rights to the work that are not transferred to him and retains all common law copyrights and all federal copyrights that have been or may be granted by the Library of Congress. This is a fundamental discrepancy between the purpose of copyright (i.e. the full choice of an author/creator through the dissemination of works) and its application, because authors lose those rights when the copyright is transferred.
