Sample Agreement

Copyright Licensing Agreement

This sample Copyright Licensing Agreement should be used when a person who owns the copyright in creative content wishes to give permission to another person to use their content (whether a visual artwork, text, music, film or other content) in a particular way. This agreement is based on the assumption the creator owns the copyright in the content he or she is licensing and contains the most common terms the parties need to consider and agree on.

Clauses in Contract

This sample agreement is a very general agreement that needs to be tailored to suit the needs of the specific case.  However, Arts Law already has a number of more specific sample copyright licensing agreements for particular situations and those may be more suitable.  This agreement should only be used if none of the following specific templates are appropriate:
