I need to send myself a letter saying that I am selling myself the copyright to my mother's book for one pound.
I need to know if that is a watertight way of getting control of the copyright. If not what is? Thank you.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I have sent the letter I will close the company if it's a watertight way of gaining control of the copyright.

Thanks for your question. I am a copyright solicitor in the UK and can help you with your question today. The correct way to do this is to enter into a formal assignation of the copyright whereby the company assigns the copyright to you as an individual. You would, if you are a director of the company, sign the deed of assignation as a director and assignor and also as an individual and assignee. I hope that helps to answer your question.
