Granting Permission to Others (To Use Your Work)
On occasion, others will ask permission to use your work. To give permission, you need to own the copyright to the work in question. When granting permission, you may choose to use a form (see links to models below). You can also selectively pre-grant permission for others to use or distribute your work according to pre-set conditions through such means as a Creative Commons license. If ownership is shared, you may still individually grant permission for others to use your work, but you must account to all other owners for any revenues received from granting that permission.
