Copyright transfer agreements are a means of regulating copyright on the basis of copyright. Since the advent of digital publishing, several commentators have drawn attention to the benefits of copyright protected copyright  and publishers have begun to implement it with licensing agreements, with the author retaining copyright and giving the publisher permission (exclusive or not) to reproduce and disseminate the work. A third model is the “Browse Wrap” or “Click Wrap” licensing model, which is becoming increasingly popular in the form of Creative Commons licenses: it allows everyone (including the publisher) to reproduce and distribute the work, with some possible restrictions. Creative Commons licenses are used by many open-access newspapers.  If your creative works are copyrighted, you can give the recordings on who uses your works and how. A copyright licensing agreement is a contract under which a copyright holder allows another person or company to use its copyrighted material in one way or another: reprint or distribute it, use it for a period of time or more. In return for the use of a copyright, the user will usually pay the owner a fee, or payment based on usage. This agreement defines in detail how, where and when the copyrighted work can be used. Since the right to use copyright is generally limited and temporary, it is called a license. Don`t confuse a copyright licensing agreement with a copyright assignment that sustainably transfers intellectual property. Other names for this document: Copyright License, Copyright License Contract The timing of the rights transfer process is inherently problematic for several reasons. First, publication means that copyright transfer rights, which are subject to publication conditions, are rarely freely transferred or acquired without printing.
 Second, it becomes very difficult for an author not to sign a copyright transfer contract because of the association of publications with career advancement (print or loss/print publication) and the time lost should be restarted in the verification and publication process. There are power dynamics in the game that do not benefit authors and often endanger certain academic freedoms.  This may partly explain why authors in the field of scientific research, unlike all other sectors where original creators receive fees or royalties, generally receive no payment from publishers.
