The copyright for works commissioned by an independent contractor or an independent professional is within the framework of the commission or commission of the work as part of a collective work. The works commissioned include those intended for the following purposes: unless the parties agree in writing to treat the work as ready to be loaned, the freelancer who manufactures it holds the copyright to his work. If a film producer pays a photographer permission to use an image in a scene, the copyright in the photo belongs to the person who took the image. The copyright to the film belongs to the producer. A copyright holder may transfer some or all of its specific rights. When a copyright holder unconditionally transfers all of his rights, it is a “transfer” (compared to a “licence” if not all rights are transferred unconditionally). among other things. Even if you did the work that worked to do and paid for it, the independent contractor could retain the copyright to the work. This would result in limited use and factors such as reproduction and distribution could be subject to IC control. Independent contractors own the copyright to the work they make available to you. (As a general rule, the copyright of a work is primarily the property of the author of the work, unless that “creator” is an employee and not an independent contractor, and even that has certain nuances that cannot always lead to the work being owned by the employer).

In general, the first copyright holder is the creator of the work. This is true if you hire a contractor and pay to create the factory. The Copyright Act also contains a provision relating to the interests of employers in copyrighted works. Copyright law states that when a work is created as part of the employment, the employer owns the copyright to the work. However, the case law states that when a work is created by an independent consultant, the advisor retains ownership in the absence of a contrary agreement. The case law also points out that explicit, even tacit, agreements that an employee retains ownership of the copyrights of his creations may, in some cases, vary the usual rules. In addition, the moral rights of the author of a work remain with respect to that author, whether or not the work is covered by the copyright employment exception outlined above. Although these rights cannot be transferred, employees may waive them by appointment. Moral rights refer to the right of the author to the integrity of the work and to a connection to the work as an author by name or under a pseudonym or to remain anonymous. Federal Law, 17 U.S.
