By freeing up the rights, the ceding gives up control over what happens to the work. The person who obtains the rights to the work («the sponsor») can then do whatever they want, including copying, distributing, publishing or whatever they want. This may be the case z.B if a graphic designer (transmitter) creates a logo for a client (ceding) and does not intend to reuse the logo. You can «assign» the logo to the customer so that the customer can use it as they see fit, including change, printing on different products and distributing to whomever they want. The owner of an intellectual property has the exclusive right to grant or sell his intellectual property, except in the context of a job, when a worker or an independent contractor creates intellectual property in the fulfillment of his obligations for the employer/client. In this case, the employer/client can legally guarantee all the intellectual property created. Typically, the person who created the intellectual property is the owner. There are, however, some situations where this is not the case: the transfer of intellectual property is a real transfer of the rights, titles and interests of an owner of certain intellectual property rights (IPRs). The assignor entrusts the receiving party («agent») with ownership of intellectual property rights. 1.2 «Intellectual property»: all technologies and intellectual property, in any form, including, but not limited, to published and unpublished works of authorship, including audiovisual works, collective works, computer programs, compilations, databases, derivative works, literary works, masked works and sound recordings («works of authorship»); inventions and discoveries, including, but not limited, to manufacturing objects, commercial methods, material compositions, improvements, machines, processes and processes, and new uses for one of the previous objects («inventions»); words, names, symbols, devices, designs and other denominations and combinations of previous elements used to identify or distinguish a business, property, group, product or service, or indicate a form of certification, including, but not limited, to logos, product designs and product characteristics («brands»); and information that is not known to everyone or that is not generally identifiable by appropriate means, tangible or not, including, but not exclusively, algorithms, client lists, ideas, designs, formulas, know-how, methods, processes, programs, prototypes, systems and techniques («Confidential Information»).
