Starting an Agreement and Fees

How to enter into an Agreement

There are two major ways to enter into an agreement.

License
"License" is a term used when intending to enter into a lease agreement for an item to lease out or rent.
 Restrictions are imposed upon the use of an item by a user who has obtained a license.
 Options include executing an agreement for an exclusive or a nonexclusive license.
 Moreover, a company intending to translate and sell material in China may obtain a license of use.
*The license will be for the copyright and not for the work itself.

Assignment
"Assignment" is a term used when intending to execute a sales agreement to sell or buy an item.
 The assignee (buyer) then becomes the copyright owner and is permitted to use the item without any restriction and may license said item to others.
 The assignor (seller) loses his/her/its right of assignment.

Agreement
 Basically, one agreement is executed per use.
 One agreement is not typically executed for media that differ in nature, such as using publishing rights to distribute a book, a DVD, and a smartphone message simultaneously.
 Media franchise must be stipulated when purchasing the right to the contents of a given piece.

Process

  1. Register using "have material contents to lease or sell" "have material contents to rent or purchase" or fill in the contact form directly.
  2. Reply by email will arrive after screening.
  3. After executing an intermediary agreement between our company and your company and then negotiate the conditions of your company and the current copyright holder.
