An assignment of contract occurs when one party to an existing contracttransfers the contract's obligations and benefits to another party. Ideally, the assignor (Owner) wants the assignee to be at his place and undertake all of his contractual obligations and rights. Copyright (or author’s right) is a legal term used to describe the rights that creators have over their literary and artistic works. Works covered by copyright range from books, music, paintings, sculpture, and films, to computer programs, databases, advertisements, maps, and technical drawings. In an assignment of copyright rights, the owner sells his or her ownership rights to another party and has no control over how the third party uses those rights.
