Information for Copyright License Agreement -

Grant of License

The license granted in this type of agreement spells out the kinds of rights that the licensee will be able to enjoy. As noted above, a federal copyright bestows upon the copyright holder a bundle of different rights. When granting a license to a licensee, it is important to state clearly which particular rights will be afforded to the licensee. Can the license reproduce the photograph(s)? Can the reproductions be sold? Can the photograph(s) be incorporated into another medium? If so, what medium, and how will it be incorporated? It is important to be very clear as to what rights the licensee will enjoy, thus clearly establishing the scope and boundaries of the license.


The term of the license agreement, and of the license granted therein, is generally for a fixed period of years, all rights under the copyright will revert back to the licensor.


There are a number of different ways of calculating royalty payments. In some cases, a royalty is a flat amount paid based on the number of units sold by the licensee. In other cases, a royalty is computed as a percentage of the sales revenue received by the licensee in the sale of licensed products.

The simplest method of calculating the royalty as a percentage of total sales is to select a percentage of gross sales revenues from all sales of the licensed products. However, in many instances, a licensee will be given the right to deduct certain expenses from gross sales revenue before a royalty percentage is applied. For example, will the royalty be a percentage of the total gross sales received by licensee? Or will certain expenses be deducted from gross sales before the percentage is taken, i.e., the amount of products returned by customers, expenses incurred in advertising the product, etc. It is important in this provision to define clearly the method by which royalty payments will be calculated.

Licensor’s Representations and Warranties

The most basic representation that a licensor will generally be expected to make is that it has the ownership interest in the copyrighted material that it claims to have, and that it therefore has the right to grant the license in the first place. The terms of the sample agreement below state that the licensor will guarantee theses basic representations by indemnifying the licensee against any damages that the licensee might suffer due to the failure of the licensor to live up to those representations.
