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