Copyright Assignment Agreement
This is an agreement under which the holder assigns their exclusive right to an artwork to somebody else.
Why Enter into an Assignment Agreement
If you wish to sell or transfer your artwork, then you must enter into a written assignment agreement for execution of the right assignment.
State registration of a copyright assignment agreement is not mandatory, such an agreement is valid and enforceable without the state registration.
The agreement may provide for the procedure of coordination of the amendments which may be introduced to the artwork.
An assignment agreement, as well as a license agreement may be either gratuitous or non-gratuitous. In case of a non-gratuitous agreement the cost of the exclusive right to be assigned payable by the new holder.
Also, please note that the Russian law does not provide for concluding a donation agreement between companies, consequently, if case of concluding a gratuitous agreement for assignment of the exclusive right to an artwork, such a deed may be further disputed.
