Hi need a little more information
Hi need a little more information.
Informed the illustrator he is the owner of the illustrations however he had already assigned copyright to the charity. You replied that he can grant me a licence as a third party to use the work and the Copyright and Patents Act 1988 states he just needs to write me a letter stating this. How long after he has assigned copyright to the charity can I ask him for a licence ? He is updating/correcting the illustration at the moment at my request. Really can I get licence to use the work or have I left it too late ?
